Washington State Government Lean Transformation Conference

2023 Washington State Lean Transformation Conference

“Transforming Ideas Into Action”

October 17 –  October 26, 2023

Results Washington hosted our 12th annual Lean Transformation Conference. The conference spanned six days from October 17th - October 26th with most days covering 4 hours of content presented by public and private-sector Lean and Continuous Improvement professionals.​ You can revisit or watch a session you missed here.

Our goals were to:​

  • Provide concrete tools and methods that participants can readily apply to their work vs. theory-based presentations.​
  • Provide learning that supports our commitment to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in Washington state government.​

​As in years past, there is no cost for people to attend the Lean conference – our focus is to produce an event that advances Lean and Continuous Improvement in state government, creating and adding more value for agency employees and Washingtonians.

Thank you to all of our presenters and partners for making this another successful conference!
