Do you wish you could sit down and talk with someone one on one about the challenges and successes and lessons learned during a career of continuous improvement?  

Join us for a lively and informative panel discussion with two WVLN members. We will talk about best practices, lessons learned, successes, failures and keys to successful process improvement.  

This event will provide you with actionable ideas and different ways of thinking that you can start using immediately in your organization and in your personal life.

WVLN is a state-wide, member-driven group, focused on applying Lean principles and continuous improvement methods to eliminate waste in business processes so member organizations can gain a competitive edge.  WVLN helps train, connect and encourage members on their lean journeys through the exchange of knowledge and experience.

As fabulous as the presentations are in providing new ideas and training that we can actively use in our organization and personal lives, the profound power of the group is the opportunity to meet, engage, and network with highly motivated individuals and leaders driving improvement in their organizations.

And there will be time for networking, discussion, and sharing before, during, and after the meeting.

Whether you’re new to process improvement and lean or an experienced practitioner, join us for our next meeting. Connect with peers and share experiences of implementing Lean process to a wide variety of fields, from manufacturing to healthcare to finance. Light refreshments will be provided, followed by guest speakers, a panel discussion, and time to network. 

Non-members of WVLN can attend one of our meetings as guests (at no cost), so feel free to invite a friend/peer who might have an interest in attending.
