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.
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.

Adding to the value of your Lean Peer Group participation is a complimentary membership to the MWCC. Membership will follow the length of the Lean Peer Group Program (LPG) for which you have enrolled. If you re-enroll, your membership will be renewed.

Baltimore Area Lean Peer Group #18
June 18, 2020 through May 18, 2021
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.
Your Lean Peer Group Facilitator
Dave Rizzardo has been the Associate Director of MWCC since 2014. In 2012, he co-developed the Lean Peer Group service and has been facilitating multiple groups since that time. His Lean experience predates the time when Lean became synonymous with business excellence. His recently published book, "Lean - Let's Get It Right! How to Build a Culture of Continuous Improvement", dives into many of the topics discussed and debated during the MWCC Lean Peer Group meetings.

Due to the impact COVID-19 has had on our clients, we will split the $3,000 cost for this Cohort in two payments: $1500 upon registration and $1500 will be due on July 1, 2021.
Due to COVID-19, we have instituted adjustments and enhanced the program. Lean Peer Group meetings are held via (Zoom) video conference. For Group #20, though all monthly meetings will be held utilizing this same format, if company travel and meeting restrictions are lifted, MWCC will make every effort to coordinate facility tours for members within travel distance of each other. These gatherings will be in addition to the monthly video conference meetings.
Following are some of the enhancements which will be incorporated for Group #20.
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.

To assure open communication, no competitors are placed within the same group. Participation is limited to 12 companies.
Lean Peer Group participation includes a one-year MWCC membership, a $1250 value. And Maryland manufacturing and technology companies qualify for grant reimbursement of 50% of the $3000 fee at the end of the Peer Group round ($1500). So, you do the math! The effective cost for MWCC manufacturing members would be $250 for the whole organization for this year-long program.
