AME Atlanta 2020 Lean Summit

Building tomorrow's lean leaders — today!


In an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), AME has rescheduled the Atlanta Lean Summit for August 10-13. All programming will remain the same. Existing registrants will have their registration automatically transferred to the new dates. Please contact with any registration questions.


There is nothing like the sharing that a fellow practitioner can provide. Be it from a keynote speaker, a workshop or a tour, our AME Atlanta Lean Summit participants always tell us they benefit most from learning about lean from peers who are passionate about how they achieved success — warts and all. They will tell you about the good, the bad and the ugly, and how they managed everything along the way. For the past three decades, AME events have helped attendees build a personal network of lean practitioners who love to share their common passion for excellence. 

As part of your registration for the AME Atlanta 2020 Lean Summit, you’ll have the opportunity to tour local lean facilities, dive deep with top experts during workshops, and learn from keynote speakers who will help inspire your journey to enterprise excellence. You’ll also have access to countless networking opportunities with AME’s vast community of continuous improvement practitioners. Set your innovative thinking into motion and gain new tools and insights that will help you save your organization time and money.

Join us for the AME Atlanta Lean Summit - August 10-13, 2020. Register today!
