    Build a Lean Culture to Ensure Long-Term Success

    The Maryland World Class Consortia hosts regional Lean Peer Groups throughout Maryland.  Lean applies to any type of organization and processing environment. Whether you are a manufacturer, distributor, service organization, or a non-profit, this program should be part of your Continuous Improvement plan. Company leaders will have an opportunity to revamp and re-energize their Lean strategy by networking with and learning from others who are committed to creating a Lean culture.

    Definition of Upper Shore:

    For the purposes of this Lean Peer Group, we are defining the Upper Shore of Maryland as Harford, Cecil, Kent & Queen Anne's counties.  You will be meeting monthly at alternating participant company locations, so we are doing our best to minimize travel for our groups.

    Who Should Attend?

    Ideal participants are representatives from your Lean Steering Committee or members of the Leadership Team, but there are no restrictions on who may attend.

    Three employees from each company may attend each meeting so only one registration per company is necessary.

    2019 Lean Facilitator Certification Program

    The Maryland World Class Consortia's flagship training resource, the Lean Facilitator Certification Program (LFCP), is now entering its 12th year! Join us for a deep dive into the tools, systems and principles of Lean Thinking.

    LFCP is an intensive 18-day curriculum that develops skills in identifying, planning, executing, and sustaining process improvements in any organization.

    Delivered over a five-month period, the skills developed in this course are designed to build in-house talent - the process improvement knowledge and experience needed to lead transformation projects on your organization's Lean Journey.

    The course is suitable for everyone: any type of industry, government, or non-profit. No prior experience with Lean is required.

    Our curriculum is aligned to the national Lean Certification's Body of Knowledge, and LFCP students can optionally pursue their Lean Bronze Certification through the course.
