If you’re in Michigan, come join me and a great crew for the first annual Michigan Lean Consortium conference near Traverse City, Aug 10 and 11. You can learn more in this PDF: MI Lean Conference Agenda 2011 FINAL and you can register online here.
I’m on the advisory board for the MLC since I grew up in Michigan and have a lot of roots there, still. I’m also looking to learn about their Consortium so I can bring lessons learned back to Texas.

- Dr. Richard Zarbo — Sr. Vice President and Chair of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Henry Ford Health System
- Jeffrey Liker, Ph.D. — Professor of Industrial and Operations Engineering at the University of Michigan Author, Toyota Under Fire and The Toyota Way
