The Accelerator Program

The Accelerator Program is designed for companies sending teams of 10+, 25+ or 50+ to the AME International Conference.

As companies progress on their lean journey, they begin to realize that their continuous improvement efforts will require a strong collaborative effort from all levels of the organization. The more people on a team who share the AME conference experience, the more impact it will have on a company’s goals and objectives. As a result, companies that send large teams to our international conference experience dramatic impacts on their culture.

Whether a company sends a team of 10+, 25+ or 50+, the Accelerator Program provides the perfect forum for maximizing an organization’s efforts to improve their processes and positively impact their culture. For example: A large collaborative effort at the conference often sparks more animated daily debrief meetings that help identify hidden barriers that are holding companies back. Accelerator Program participants experience the power of lean and deliver greater customer value. AME offers numerous conference benefits available only to Accelerators.
