Are you ready to connect with the thinkers at the leading edge of lean improvement journeys?

Innovation Excellence

Our mission is to bring the insights on lean process and product development together for you to learn and exchange


What is Lean PD

Lean PD and Lean Thinking is more of a cultural aspect than a set of methods and tools


Learn best practices from others and participate in workshops


LPPDE is a non-profit organization created to foster opportunities to grow and share Lean PD knowledge

It was great to learn so much and connect with so many people in a close & personal environment!

Thanks to you and the rest of the board on delivering a successful event! I attended a couple of great sessions and learned new info to put to use in our product development system.

The LPPDE conference has provided me with fantastic learning and networking opportunities, and has taught time more about LEAN PD than any training I have ever attended. Thank you for this excellent experience!
