LSS Reactor Conference 2014
A Word From Al Shalloway, Conference ChairmanThe Lean Systems Society is committed to creating a community which has open discussions of issues that are critical to improving the effectiveness of organizations. These topics include Lean-thinking, systems thinking, organizational development, Agile methods and more. The intention of the Lean Systems Society’s Reactor Conferences are to be a catalyst for year round conversations and collaborations. Prior to each conference, topics from last year's conference will be shepherded by one or more fellows. In addition, new topics for conversation can be started and presented at the upcoming conference. In this manner the Lean Systems Society Conferences live before, during and after the actual dates of the conference. See these topics on our discussion group.
The Reactor Conferences are not intended for fellows only. They are to create a space for fellows and members (attending the conference automatically makes you a member of the LSS for one year) to engage with each other. This is a chance for executives, other practitioners and consultants to engage with thought leaders for three days - not merely attend talks by them.
The general format of the conference is:
- Day 1: Building community, creating workspaces
- Day 2: Working and learning together on topics of interest
- Day 3: Setting the stage for future learning and collaboration
I look forward to working and learning with many of you. If not at the conference at least in the discussions preceding it.
|"I had a ball at Reactor13. Probably the most gratifying conference I had ever been part of. The combination of brain power, deep knowledge, intellectual honesty and just about the right amount of structure energized me immensely. I can't thank the organizers enough for their labor of love."
