There’s almost no better way to grow on your lean journey than to connect with other lean maniacs and organizations. Although “lean” is a commonly-used word in many circles, it can be hard to find that rare individual who is humble, generous, and on fire about lean.
We have a few recommendations…
Follow Lean Maniacs on YouTube
There are quite a few incredible people and organizations practicing lean and sharing their stories and progress on YouTube. We recommend checking them out and subscribing to their channels.

Attend the Global Lean Leadership Summit
One of the most engaging lean conferences in the world is the Global Lean Leadership Summit. The crowd that attends this conference are on fire! And yet they are humble, generous, and serious about the larger lean community. The organizations who attend are all practicing some form of 2 Second Lean. We strongly recommend that you consider attending the summit.

We’re building a home for the lean maniac and it’s the Lean Smarts Community.

Aside from exclusive content of facility tours, lean training, and case studies, the community gives you access to live Q&A, community groups, and more.
