"Participating in the Lean Lounge was a great experience for our team. Preparation for the poster board and display helped us understand how far we have come and what we have accomplished as a team. Sharing those experiences with our peers in the lean lounge opened up a whole new dialogue of where we may improve our lean journey. In addition we made many contacts to help us continue improving. Our time invested was well worth it." - Scott Matheson , COO, Dole & Bailey Inc.
"I enjoyed the selection of session topics I could attend, and especially enjoyed all of the opportunities provided to meet and network with so many other people like me - eager to learn and passionate about lean."
"The large group presentations were excellent. Professional organization and welcoming, helpful, truly dedicated staff. The breakout sessions were excellent as well. And everyone was friendly, respectful and willing to share. A true community of practice in the NE."
"This is a fantastic conference; every session I attended had something I could take away to either reflect upon or experiment with; the cost to attend is low and the value is extremely high."
"Almost all of the speakers were extremely knowledgeable, passionate, engaging and willing to answer any question I had, and not just on the theory but on the application in real workplace environments."
"The conference was an incredible experience. I hope to be able to attend next year and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in Lean."

The biggest takeaways for me were about how Lean is a culture and in order to embrace it you have to change your work culture and that Lean needs to become an everyday habit."
"My favorite moments were being able to see the light bulb click for my fellow co-workers who attended. Finally I believe they understand the importance of people first."
