It’s been fun attending the annual Lean Transformation Summit (produced by LEI). Today is Day 2. I took some notes from Day 1 and Tom Ehrenfeld has been “live blogging” it a bit on the LEI site. Tom also took and posted a picture of me in my spiffy “Lean Geek” t-shirt.
LEI had a few experiments with this year’s Summit. One was the use of “open space technology” for a session yesterday afternoon where attendees self organized into discussion groups on these questions that were generated by the attendees.
The second experiment was a learning session that had four short ten-minute talks from different attendees who had submitted a proposal… including me.
