About LEAN KONGRESS Czech Republic

There is nothing better than personal. Congress participants tell us that they benefit most from learning about Lean Management from companions who are passionate and open. They will tell you about the good, the bad and how they managed everything.

Over the last two decades, we have helped our congress participants build a personal network of Lean practitioners who are happy to share their common passion for excellence.

Participants have the opportunity to visit partner companies, immerse themselves in depth with top experts and learn from keynote speakers who will help you be inspired on your path to business excellence.

They also have access to a community of continuously improving BLC staff and Lean Academy graduate experts. 

"Get your innovative thinking moving and gain new tools and insights to help you save your company time and money."


Previous congresses were thematically focused on presentations and discussions on the following topics:

  • "Experience from the implementation of Kaizen and Lean tools"

  • "New trends in management and leadership"

presented in practical examples from the lives of participating companies.

We remind you of popular topics from past events:

  • 5S - organized and constantly improving workplace
  • TPM - productive maintenance
  • Hoshin Kanri - strategic management of the company according to vision and goals
  • Lean coaching cascade
  • Leader Standard Work - a set of work routines supporting effective leadership
  • projects to support corporate culture change
  • automation projects

In the future, we will thematically focus on automation and digitization in both production and office and elements of Industry 4.0.


Every year, we carefully select lecturers from among experts on current topics related to management. The second popular group of lecturers are plant managers and internal Lean experts.


The program includes discussion workshops on relevant topics.


In addition to lectures and discussions, congress participants enjoyed inspiring benchmark visits focused on successful projects of partner companies.


The congress includes a fun evening connected with networking. The power of personal meeting works much better and more effectively than all social networks.


The first four Congresses (2004 - 2007) took place at Štiřín Castle with the participation of Kaizen guru Mr. Maasaki Imai and international experts on Kaizen and Lean.

From 2009 to 2019 the partners of congresses were Continental, Protherm, Škoda Auto (2x), Kostal, Automotive Lighting, Assa Abloy, Fraenkische, Aisan, Alfmeier, Prazdroj, Faurecia, Liberty, Bekaert
