Why join the Lean Digital Summit?

Lean Digital Summit 2018 –  Lean Thinking for the Digital Era

  • Disruptive changes and innovation are everywhere: in technology, business model, usage.
  • Most markets are aggressively attacked by very agile emerging competitors.
  • Customers and employees have high expectations in terms of user experience or motivating working context.

For traditional organizations, the challenge is threefold:

  • develop agility to quickly adapt to a world of constant and rapid changes,
  • focus on customer experience to guarantee client loyalty in saturated markets,
  • create a working context that fosters employees’ engagement.

Lean Thinking is the solution to implement strategic principles required by the advent of digital: agility, customer experience and employees engagement. The Lean Digital Summit will showcase the best examples of adaptation to that new context through 3 angles:

  • the customer/ the product
  • how to make it
  • the management way to achieve this. Because this is all about management!


Every year, the Lean Digital Summit – AKA Lean IT Summit – brings the Lean IT community together to share ideas, exchange and create knowledge
