This year's theme, "Everybody, Everyday: Creating a Culture of Total Employee Involvement" reflects the belief that Lean manufacturing is critical in today's global economy and that the most critical success factor when implementing Lean is getting all employees....from the CEO to the front line employees....thinking about continuous improvement everyday.
