What members are saying about the AME San Francisco Bay Area Consortium:

"The consortium has provided a perfect balance of go and sees, interactive discussion and perspectives from different industry leaders on the practical application of lean concepts and lean strategy.  It helps to have an engaged and knowledgeable  facilitator and the consortium membership pays for itself with the generous AME conference discounts.  It is also fun from a social networking perspective." - Sujata Easton, Director of Strategic Projects, Kaiser Permanete Diablo

"The consortium provides a forum for collaboration and learning.  It has provided opportunities for shared training, benchmarking at member facilities, and tapping into the groups lean experience. It has allowed all involved to advance in their lean journeys." - Anita Shah, Operations Director, Parmatech

"One of the most important components of lean is learning.  Being part of the consortium allows us to learn from other local companies' lean journeys while getting valuable feedback for the approach we're taking. " - Dan Burton, Global Lean Lead, Genentech / Roche

"I get new ideas and validation on what we’re trying with our lean transformation from the peer companies in the AME Bay Area Consortium.  I particularly like connecting with people across different industries who are facing similar challenges as we are and how they’re approaching solving them. The gemba walks of lean implementations also keep my skills of “seeing” sharp." - Shawn Carner, Head of Operational Excellence (Vacaville), Genentech / Roche
