The 2019 GBMP conference turns its focus on recognizing the re-emergence of Total Employee Involvement (TEI) as the key to unlocking the full benefits of Lean transformation. In the early days of Lean implementation, company involvement of all employees at all levels was identified as the keystone to Lean. TEI recognized the innate capabilities and desire of employees to always make things better. But, in the early 90’s, as Lean tools were popularized, the focus on broad employee involvement diminished. New jobs were created to concentrate the tasks of problem solving and improvement in the hands of just a small segment of employees. Now, organizations seeking to change their culture are recognizing that this must involve everyone. Featuring six tracks, 60 speakers, and 500 fellow practitioners we hope you will join us!
