From the Industry Week description:

Despite the recent successes of lean manufacturing, there are reasons to worry about its future — even at companies with strong lean promotion efforts. So says lean visionary Dr. James Womack, the world-renowned lean manufacturing expert and president of the Lean Enterprise Institute.

Hear Dr. Womack deliver his frank evaluation of the future of lean during a special IndustryWeek webcast on May 5.

During his presentation, Dr. Womack will also discuss the next leap in the lean journey — lean consumption. Lean consumption requires a fundamental shift in the way manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, and service providers
think about the connection between provision and consumption. After his presentation, Dr. Womack will address questions from the audience.
