• Joe Rizzo. Director of the New England Lean

CI Day at Gemline in Lawrence, MA

Hosted by: Gemline

Date: Tuesday June 26, 2018 Time: 1-4pm Location: Gemline, 9 International Way, Lawrence, MA 01843

CI Day or Continuous Improvement Day, provides an opportunity for twenty plus departments to showcase their work and accomplishments to fellow employees in the company and to selected invited guests. The Gem Group invested heavily in a CII initiative (Continuous Improvement and Innovation) in 2002. They have continued to invest in developing their people, since that time. While they have received some help from outside consulting groups, most of their learning and development is provided by their internal resources. Gemline is one of the best examples of total employee engagement that I have seen in a company.

I have received permission from Cindi Woodbury for the members of the New England Lean Consortium to attend.


Gemline was one of the tours for the AME Boston 2017 Conference.
