NFP Resource recently reviewed a book LEAN expert, Paddy O’Brien. We hosted a workshop on the subject and have recently learned of a  conference being held in Wellington in May (and Christchurch in August) which includes aspects of the LEAN philosophy: 

The CICE Lean/Continuous Improvement Networking Conference Event, Wellington 16 May 2018. Conference & Networking Dinner.

The culture of this conference is maximum sharing and learning about CI in practice, by engaging with as many ‘Doers’/Practitioners as possible. People want to share, learn and be inspired. Consistently they say they go away with increased confidence in their own capability, with a whole lot of new ideas and thinking to add to the mix. Knowing there is a whole community out there of others with the same challenges and successes to engage with. 

Previous feedback…..I had 8 different takeaways from the day, and….loved the variety of people, speakers and industries in the room, plus ….solutions to the issues I was facing.

The conference is a chance and a day to meet face to face, to hear and share stories and build the network for support throughout the following year. A great platform to connect with others.

The conference will also run in Christchurch 8-9 August
