10th ELEC – European Lean Educator Conference

Wed. September 25, 2024 - Fri. September 27, 2024 in Chemnitz (Germany)
"Lean Practice for a Better Future"

Objectives and Scope of ELEC 2024

– Sharing Lean management and operations improvement practices across academia and industry –

The 10th European Lean Educators Conference brings together leading experts on Lean and any approach related to making things better, and potentially cheaper. It is dedicated to fostering knowledge exchange within academia as well as between academic institutions and industry, which we believe is especially important given current global contexts. As such, ELEC 2024 provides a platform for professors, teachers, trainers and coaches from academia, industry and public sector organizations to share their knowledge and experiences and learn from one another. ELEC conferences distinguish Lean thinking as a broad management and operations improvement philosophy, fully grounded in science and supported by a continually growing set of methods, techniques and tools.
