Conference Chair's Message

Greg MacDougall AME Chicago 2019 ChairmanJOIN US NOV. 4-7
AME's 35th annual International Conference in Chicago

When the "City of Broad Shoulders" opens its arms to host the world's largest lean conference, you know it's going to be something special. For the past 18 months, I've been working together with AME staff and volunteers to make sure this isn't just the biggest lean conference, but it's also the best.

What sets the AME International Conference apart is that it is designed by continuous improvement practitioners who have a keen understanding of what it takes to practice lean — whether you do so in manufacturing, health care, government or another industry. For 35 years, AME has brought together the best lean minds to share, learn and grow through keynotes, practitioner-to-practitioner networking, conference sessions and best practice facility tours.

Come to Chicago eager to hear leading-edge ideas and ready to network with lean pioneers, executives, senior operations managers and fellow practitioners. Go home armed with new insights to help you and your organization focus on continuous improvement for the long haul.

Register today and join us as we explore Leading on the Edge to World-Class Excellence with best practice speakers, workshops  and tour sites all focused on continuing the journey toward enterprise excellence.
