About the Lean Coaching Summit

The annual Lean Coaching Summit is designed for continuous improvement professionals, or anyone in a lean environment, responsible for directing the work of others. The Summit is focused on action, not theory; so, prepare to log in, learn, and practice key coaching skills.

We're going virtual...
And we're excited about it!

Just because we can’t meet face-to-face in 2021 doesn’t mean we can’t gather and share! So please do that! Join your peers for a lively online learning and networking exchange. Join us for the 2021 Lean Coaching Summit, a virtual experience with a personal touch.

in ways you’ve shared are most meaningful.
