A Lean Accounting Summit
Opening Session Like No Other!
Each year the Lean Accounting Summit has opened with the biggest names lean has to offer… Womack, Rother, Hoseus, Koenigsaecker, and Bodek, just to name a few. But this year offers something unique. Something groundbreaking. Something that will impact executive leadership striving for an enterprise-wide lean business model.
The 2013 Lean Accounting Summit will kick-off with famed lean pioneer and former Wiremold CEO Art Byrne, who gained fame for his well-chronicled turnaround of The Wiremold Company. Since that time, Byrne has been involved in countless lean implementations with similar success and comes to the Summit to share insights from his recently published book, The Lean Turnaround.
Comments on Byrne’s work by just a few of lean’s most recognizable names…
Essential for C-Level Leaders from the Leading Lean Practitioner – Bob Emiliani
Breathe of Fresh Air on Lean Transformation – Brian Maskell
How to make a fortune with lean – Michael Balle
Designed for Your Entire Executive Team
An opening keynote by Art Byrne would inspire most executive teams to action, but the 2013 Lean Accounting Summit goes further by bringing a panel discussion with Byrne and several members of his former executive team. How did the entire executive team work in concert to achieve the success they did? What lessons did they learn from the experience? What would they do differently? What insights have they gained over the years that might guide your executive team to a rapid and successful Lean Turnaround?
If ever there was a reason to make the annual Lean Accounting Summit part of an executive retreat THIS IS IT! Do as many teams have done in the past and make the Summit an executive strategic focus for the year.
Review of The Lean Turnaround
“With 30 years of accumulated experience, Art Byrne is one of the rare few people who can speak with authority about the pitfalls of financial measurement systems, the importance of respect for people, the power of Lean in the marketplace, and the leverage from organizing people around value streams. When he writes ‘Go to the Gemba and Run Your Kaizen,’ we must take heed.” — MASAAKI IMAI, bestselling author of Kaizen and Gemba Kaizen
