What Can You Expect?
The key question for LeanSummitCZSK 2021 is: HOW? How companies develop their healthy company culture, maximise efficiency and productivity, deliver an operating data-driven and customer-focused model, manage changes, digitize processes and improve their quality? What have they succeeded in and what have they failed at? What is their personal experience and authentic leadership?
We have developed a modern format to support knowledge sharing, experience based learning
