The Maryland World Class Consortia hosts regional Lean Peer Groups throughout Maryland. Lean applies to any type of organization and processing environment.

You will be meeting monthly at alternating participant company locations; we do our best to minimize travel for our participants.
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.

Virtual Lean Peer Group #19
Tentative Dates: October 15, 2020 to September 9, 2021
Tentatively scheduled to kick off on October 15th. Due to COVID-19, we have instituted adjustments and enhanced the program. For the last five months, the Lean Peer Group meetings have been held via (Zoom) video conference. For Group #19, though all monthly meetings will be held utilizing this same format, if company travel and meeting restrictions are lifted, MWCC will coordinate facility tours for members within travel distance of each other. These gatherings will be in addition to the monthly video conference meetings.
New Program Features!
Following are some of the enhancements which will be incorporated for Group #19.
Who Should Attend?
Not just for manufacturers, our Lean Peer Groups have a mix of companies from a broad range of industries and Lean maturity levels, from those who are just getting started to some who would be considered Lean-mature organizations. All of these organizations have been able to learn and grow. The only real requirement is a sincere desire and commitment to moving forward on this never-ending journey of excellence. To assure open communication, no competitors are placed within the same group.
What is the cost?
The cost is $3,000 per company and includes a complimentary membership to the MWCC (a value of $1250). Participation is limited to 12 companies.

This tuition covers all academic modules and course training materials for each academic day.
