Conference keynote speakers include Mike Rother, known worldwide for his groundbreaking research on Toyota, and how their management methods can improve any group’s performance. His most recent book, “Toyota Kata”, is fundamentally changing the understanding of the improvement, change and adaptiveness needed to meet 21st Century challenges.
Organizations from across the mid-Atlantic region will showcase their successes using lean methods. Aerospace companies, including Northrop Grumman, ATK, Lycoming, and Orbital Sciences, will detail their results. Eight hospitals will explain how lean is helping to drive down waste and the cost of healthcare: Cleveland Clinic, Lehigh Valley Health Network, the Pittsburgh Regional Healthcare Initiative, and others. Howard County (MD) Public Schools will describe how they are better managing facilities and resources, and how their approach can apply to schools and government organizations.
“The Maryland World Class Consortia is very excited to help people in business, healthcare, education and government to connect, learn, share, and grow at the Mid-Atlantic Lean Conference,” says Jeff Fuchs, the MWCC’s Director and the conference organizer.
