The Northeast Lean Conference was created by GBMP to provide information and inspiration to Lean practitioners – from those just starting out to seasoned Lean leaders from the manufacturing, healthcare, service and other vital industry sectors. ​The practical learning format features exceptional keynote and breakout presentations, interdepartmental panels, peer-to-peer discussions, hands-on simulations, interactive learning and sharing, and unlimited networking opportunities. Meet more than 500 passionate Lean, Six Sigma and Continuous Improvement professionals just like you. Subscribe for email updates to get all the event news as it breaks here! Learn about this year’s conference theme below.

About this year’s theme: “It’s About Time”


​“We don’t have time for continuous improvement.”  Time has long been a reason given for foregoing process improvement, but lately, it’s even more prevalent.   Is this because we are too busy expediting material or searching for someone to run a machine or help a patient?  Or, maybe our race to re-supply pent-up demand from the pandemic is the problem; or the increase in tactical meetings to locate local sources of supply for material no longer available from overseas manufacturers. As the saying goes, “We’re too busy fighting alligators to drain the swamp,”  except now there are far more alligators.  So, how can we reclaim this valuable lost time?  With a singular source of inexhaustible energy: employee creativity.  According to Shigeo Shingo, unlocking that creativity requires just two ingredients: methods and motivation.  These will be the focus of our 19th Annual Northeast L.E.A.N. Conference.  Our theme, It’s About Time, has a double meaning:

  • First, the correct use of Lean methods – from 5S to SMED to Standardized Work – absolutely reclaims and repurposes wasted time for the betterment of customers, employees, and the company.  Provide employees with these methods and watch the creativity surge.
  • Second, there has never been a better time than today when so many organizations regardless of industry share a common motivation:  How to satisfy increased customer demand in the face of scarce resources?  Doesn’t that sound like Lean?  It’s about time for management to make a visible commitment to continuous improvement.

Now is the time for every organization to invest in the benefits of Lean transformation.  GBMP’s 2023 Northeast Lean Conference will bring together thought leaders and experienced Lean practitioners to give you and your team the knowledge and inspiration to accelerate your ROI on all of your continuous improvement efforts.
