With the current economic climate threatening survival for many manufacturers, it is vital to focus on creating and sustaining success in a competitive marketplace. Gaining the inspiration, knowledge and tools to ensure a journey to greatness is focus of the 2009 International Lean Conference hosted by the Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME).
From Oct. 19-23, 2009, on the southern side of Cincinnati, an expected 2,500 Lean practitioners from around North America will learn from eight inspirational keynote speakers sharing their Lean strategies and success stories. Their experiences allow conference attendees to discover innovative decision-making methods, enhance leadership skills, save money and develop a more efficient business process – all from leaders who explore continuous improvement and best practices on a daily basis.
The 2009 International Lean Conference will begin with In a World Full of Challenges, Attitude Makes the Difference, a motivational message by Alvin Law, president of AJL Communications Limited. Attendees will learn from a man whose challenges of being born without arms have been the focus of three award-winning television documentaries and an Emmy-winning ABC short feature.
As AME celebrates 25 years of progress, participants will find countless networking opportunities, practitioner-to-practitioner and company-to-company shared-learning experiences, and innovative Lean tools and strategies at the 2009 Annual International Lean Conference.
