    Build a Lean Culture to Ensure Long-Term Success

    The Maryland World Class Consortia hosts regional Lean Peer Groups throughout Maryland.  Lean applies to any type of organization and processing environment. Whether you are a manufacturer, distributor, service organization, or a non-profit, this program should be part of your Continuous Improvement plan. Company leaders will have an opportunity to revamp and re-energize their Lean strategy by networking with and learning from others who are committed to creating a Lean culture.

    Definition of Upper Shore:

    For the purposes of this Lean Peer Group, we are defining the Upper Shore of Maryland as Harford, Cecil, Kent & Queen Anne's counties.  You will be meeting monthly at alternating participant company locations, so we are doing our best to minimize travel for our groups.

    Who Should Attend?

    Ideal participants are representatives from your Lean Steering Committee or members of the Leadership Team, but there are no restrictions on who may attend.

    Three employees from each company may attend each meeting so only one registration per company is necessary.
