Productivity ILC Tour 

Details: Are you curious to see how Lean is practiced at the company that helped create it? The Iowa Lean Consortium's Kentucky Lean Tour will explore the best practices in Lean leadership by taking ILC members on an in-depth walking tour of the largest Toyota plant in the world. Participants will be granted unparalleled access to the factory floor of Toyota's largest plant. You'll get a first-hand view of Toyota's culture of continuous improvement and leadership development programs, and you'll create a tangible action plan on how to take your own Lean program to the next level.
