Lean.org’s Connection Finder
I wanted to point out this Lean networking resource, if you haven't seen it. The Lean Enterprise Institute has a “Connection Finder” that allows you to find other Lean professionals by location or specialty.
I often get questions about “how do I find a Lean factory to tour in Chicago?” This website is a good way of contacting folks who have volunteered to be reachable through this format. Just don't spam anyone trying to sell consulting or, worse, software.
