The New England Lean Consortium will be holding its October Lean Leaders Meeting at Tiffany and Company in Cumberland, RI, on Tuesday, September 18th. Current Lean Consortium members include companies from Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

Tiffany & Company (known colloquially as Tiffany or Tiffany's) is an American luxury jewelry and specialty retailer, headquartered in New York City.

Tiffany sells jewelry, sterling silver, china, crystal, stationery, fragrances, water bottles, watches, personal accessories, as well as some leather goods. Many of these goods are sold at Tiffany stores, as well as through direct-mail and corporate merchandising. Tiffany is renowned for its luxury goods and is particularly known for its diamond and sterling silver jewelry. Tiffany markets itself as an arbiter of taste and style.

As part of the Lean Leaders Meeting, we will be taking a tour of the manufacturing facility in Cumberland, RI. The tour will include the manufacture of gold, silver, and platinum rings, along with diamond rings and diamond jewelry, pearl necklaces and trophies, including the National League and American League trophies.

A Lean Consortium is a group of companies and organizations that get together to help each other on their Lean Continuous Improvement journey by sharing best practices and resources. Facilitated by a Lean CI professional, the Consortium brings together local companies and peers to share, learn and grow with each other on their Lean journey.

You are invited to attend the September 2018 Lean Leaders Meeting.

Who Should Attend? Those companies that have a Lean Program and would like to take their CI program to a new level. Those companies that would like to benchmark with other companies in New England.

Meeting Content A Lean Leaders Meeting is an opportunity to learn new approaches to improving a Continuous Improvement Program. Attendees at these meetings can always walk away with some new ideas or new tools that they can apply at their own place of work. The host company benefits from the Meeting through the Plus/Delta Feedback Session as many improving ideas are offered during the session. The main benefit of a Lean Consortium is the fresh pair of eyes that come to a member company, and see the obvious waste. Attendees ask the Why? questions. Why do you do that? Why do you do it that way?

The attendees at a Lean Leaders meeting are all Lean Practitioners, possessing great experience, expertise and skills in Lean. The attendees offer their suggestions for improvement based on what they see and what they hear. It is a great opportunity to have a team of leading Lean Practitioners tour your plant and provide positive, reinforcing feedback.
