About LEAN KONGRESS Czech Republic

There is nothing better than personal sharing. Whoever it is, our congress participants always tell us that they benefit most from learning about leanness from peers who are passionate and open. They will tell you about the good, the bad and how they managed to do everything.

Over the past two decades, we have helped participants in our congress build a personal network of lean practitioners who love to share their passion for excellence.

As part of your registration for the 14th International LEAN Congress, you will have the opportunity to visit local partner companies, dive deep with top experts and learn from keynote speakers to help you inspire on your way to business excellence.

You will also have access to countless networking opportunities with a community of continuously improving BLC workers.

"Set your innovative thinking in motion and get new tools and knowledge to help you save your company time and money."
