Art Byrne is a legend in the lean community. An early adopter beginning at GE in the early 1980s, Byrne went on to Danaher and The Wiremold Company (as CEO), both cited in "Lean Thinking" as shining examples of the successful application of lean. He continues practicing today with J.W. Childs, a private equity group, leading lean transformations in both industrial and service organizations. Author of "The Lean Turnaround" and "The Lean Turnaround Action Guide," Byrne draws on 35 years of practical experience. You will not want to miss this opportunity to spend an hour with a true pioneer of lean. This will primarily be a Q&A session. Byrne will give a few thoughts on lessons learned then open it up to attendees. Bring your questions and open minds for what should be a spirited session.
