Lean Summit 2019 – 1st Global Learning Lean Summit


24th October 2019


Chester Racecourse, Chester, UK



The over arching purpose of our Summits are as follows:

  • To raise consciousness of the latest developments in Lean Thinking and Practice
  • To provide insight into practical ways to get started, deepen or enhance your Lean journey
  • To enable participants to build their own network of Lean Thinkers

We do this by:

  • Bringing together the best Lean practitioners and sensei in the Lean world for participants to learn from
  • Building time into the programme for participants to network
  • Providing a variety of learning situations – including pre-Summit workshops on leading edge topics, keynote talks, interactive learning sessions and panel discussions
  • Enabling groups from the same organisations to come to the Summit to learn together

Key questions for this year:

  • What is Lean learning?
  • How can we improve the way we learn lean?
  • What can the world of education learn from Lean Thinking and Lean Practice?
  • What can organisations implementing Lean Thinking and Practice learn from the world of education?

As part of the programme, delegates will be able to visit two learning environments:

  • Toyota – to see the way in which the organisation develops capability.
  • The Learning Trust – to see how a lean learning environment is being developed.

As well as hear leading keynote talks and participate in a number of learning sessions.

  • So much learned from the event – particulalry the leading edge topics.
  • Chance to see and speak with great lean experts from a variety of fields.
  • A truly international event – Lean Thinkers from over 20 countries present!
  • I learned many new things and met like minded people. Gave me motivation to change.
  • I try and attend every year and manage it most times – I always gain such insight and it’s a great opportunity to catch up with people and network with new attendees.
  • This conference provided key insights and really challenged my thinking much more than other lean events I’ve been to.
