AME Chicago 2019

Some conferences end with a handshake. 

Ours ends with a high five.

The AME 2019 International Conference in Chicago is the largest lean conference in the world. With outstanding keynote speakers, daily practitioner presentations, must-see benchmarking tours, and pre-conference workshops, the learning experience is like no other. World-class, highly successful continuous improvement practitioners provide a source of knowledge that you can rely on to confidently make the changes needed to accelerate growth.

AME is a not-for-profit, volunteer-based organization. Our sole purpose is to provide a practical and reliable source of continuous improvement learning. This is your opportunity to connect with key industry leaders in manufacturing and network with manufacturing executives, senior operations managers and plant engineers who are on the journey toward enterprise excellence.



About the Chicago theme

With the theme Leading on the Edge, the AME Chicago 2019 International Conference will explore ways to accelerate your journey toward excellence. Come to learn from practitioners who:

  • Have committed to further advance lean at the highest possible level and to transfer lessons learned across their organizations
  • Lead people with outside-the-box thinking and who break away from the old ways of managing in their shift toward the advancement, development, and respect for their people in a collaborative environment
  • Are unafraid to be transparent with communications and the company-wide sharing of information in fostering an environment of engagement and trust
  • Understand and embrace technological innovation and are inherently focused on the edge of "tomorrow" in knowing where their future strategies need to be and what their customers will need in order for both to succeed and be in this for the long-term.
