Lean Coaching Summit:
The Next Steps

As ever, there is great promise for finding better ways to make things, deliver service, and develop people. To help fulfill that promise, the Lean Enterprise Institute and Lean Frontiers are excited to partner again for the 2016 Lean Coaching Summit, now entering its fifth year. The Summit’s aim? To inspire and develop the people who develop others.

Join us for the 5th Annual
Lean Coaching Summit
July 25-27, 2016
Minneapolis, MN

coaching-spectrumOver the course of three summits, we have come to better know you, our customers. You come from a wide range of industries; have diverse backgrounds and varying levels of experience and skill. Furthermore, you come with individual perspectives on what is “lean coaching.” To use a sports coaching metaphor, this year’s Summit will consider the questions, “What is the game? How is it played? Who are the athletes? And what coaching is needed to improve performance?”

We have designed an agenda on the premise that lean coaches instruct and counsel problem solvers at all levels – from those training the front lines on how to do a specific job correctly to those in top management seeking the survival and growth of an enterprise. And of course, everyone and every problem in between. As coaches, we all know, if we can develop an organization of problem solvers we will enable improvement every day.

This year, we will explore topics including:

  • Providing corrective instruction to improve performance
  • Asking questions to prompt deeper thinking
  • Forcing reflection to develop capability
  • Planning for every person’s development
  • Creating conditions conducive to learning
  • Utilizing problem solving tools correctly to address critical business needs

About the Agenda

The 2016 Lean Coaching Summit is currently in development, taking into account participant feedback and recognized needs. Look for the agenda to be released in the early part of 2016.
