Central Coast Lean and Cal Poly’s Orfalea College of Business hosted the fourth annual Central Coast Lean Summit on Feb. 19-20, 2015, at the Performing Arts Center. The summit showcased lean advances through this year’s theme, “Frontliners Engaged in Problem-Solving.”
Attendees took advantage of a pre-summit workshop to learn the lean language through a hands-on simulation that emphasized several lean concepts. The summit itself featured interactive workshops with leaders in the health care, manufacturing, government and higher education sectors. Norbert Majerus, senior master Six Sigma black belt at Goodyear, delivered the keynote address, “Principle-based Problem-Solving in Lean R&D.”
The annual event aims to showcase lean innovations,trends and best practices that will be valuable to practitioners in a variety of industries. The organizers see this as an opportunity to foster a community of local leaders who can build their network with likeminded managers engaged in lean strategies.
