Join WVLN for our June meeting in Lafayette. Wabash Valley Lean Network is 100+ companies from Indiana and surrounding states meeting once per month to learn and share about process improvement. Our focus is process improvement using lean philosophy and tools. 

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

Respect for People/Servant Leadership
Toyota's model for lean always shows two pillars; continuous improvement and respect for people.  We spend a lot of time on the CI part of lean.....not so much on the respect for people.  This month we will discuss how to build a culture of respect for people and how the concept of servant leadership links to lean and organizational improvement.
This will be a great opportunity to learn and share about one of the most important parts of lean that is rarely discussed.

Multi-Topic Discussions/UnConference
We are going to take the 2nd half of the program to discuss the topics you have told us are the most important to you.  We will break out into 5 different groups with each group having their own discussion topic.  Be able to ask the questions you always wanted to ask, be able to share with people facing the same challenges as you are facing.  This format was well received the first time we did it.  We made some improvements so it will be even better this time.

Breakout Topic Discussions
Lean Leadership - with panel of lean leaders
Value Steam Mapping/A3 
Problem Solving/Data Collection
Lean Training
How to Improve WVLN Networking/Engagement

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