Challenging times call for creativity, resourcefulness, and a fresh approach. On Friday, November 1, the University of New Hampshire in partnership with the State of New Hampshire will host the 2019 Lean Summit ‘So You Think You Know Lean’ at the Memorial Union Building on the UNH Campus in Durham, NH. This collaboration partners Lean practitioners from higher education, state agencies, nonprofits, and regional businesses to provide energizing conversations, creative solutions, and expansive ideas. Registration beings today - Monday, September 23 – and closes on Sunday, October 27.  

Lean is an approach to running any organization or process with a focus on continuous improvements and innovative ideas that create great results. The 2019 Lean Summit is committed to the spirit of innovation, and to help practitioners deliver value and efficiency through Lean and Continuous Process Improvement. Participants will hear from an array of Lean experts, network with other Lean practitioners, and participate in hands-on activities to introduce new ideas to help sharpen toolsets.

Last year, the Lean Summit drew over 260 attendees. This year's Summit features a special keynote speaker, numerous learning opportunities, engaging, interactive sessions, and a chance to integrate and learn from other Lean practitioners. The keynote speaker will be announced soon, along with our panel of guest speakers.
