 Join us for 3 days of lively and challenging discussions with Lean leaders who will share their fascinating research, experience and insights related to healthcare innovation.  The Lean Leadership Retreat is a user conference designed to address Lean implementation opportunities and challenges featuring presentations on practical experiences, research and new applications.

This year's theme is Innovation and Opportunity.  

The 9th Annual Lean Leadership Retreat will also feature an optional Introduction to Lean for Healthcare session the evening of Sunday, October 20 from 6-8 pm at no additional cost.  The objective of this session is to prepare participants who are new-to-Lean to benefit fully from the subsequent conference presentations.  All participants are welcome to attend this Lean overview. 

At the closing of the conference we will recognize one organization for its exemplary work improving healthcare.  If your organization has achieved remarkable improvements with Lean submit a nomination now for the 2013 Art of Innovation Award! (the recipient may be an individual, work unit or organization).
