Join This Complimentary Session - CoP Hosts " Lean Coffee" AND MORE!

One of the great reasons to use a Lean Coffee is to learn and support each other in Lean endeavors. Mixed groups and company groups meet to get help, test ideas and share progress of adopting a Lean strategy. Lean Coffee is a “free space” for people to get to explore issues and concerns that they otherwise don't get to discuss. This free space gives people a chance to try out behaviors, exercise leadership, get help, give help and grow professionally.

Join us on Friday, December 9th, 2016 
7:30 AM - 9:30 AM
