We are excited to announce that we are hosting our 3rd unconference!

The goal for this virtual event is to bring together like-minded people interested in helping nonprofits, NGOs, government agencies and public sector organizations apply Lean and other process improvement methods (Lean Impact, Lean Startup, Continuous Improvement, Toyota Production System, Six Sigma, TQM, Kata, etc) to have greater positive impact to people and the environment.

We will get started by introducing the concept of the unconference (open space) principles and explain our agenda for the session. Attendees will be encouraged to suggest a topic for discussion. Topics are agreed upon and assigned into sessions (multiple topics within each session, like a regular conference).

Attendees decide on which discussions they want to participate in and are able to move freely between breakout rooms.

Read our Community Agreement for Open Space events.

Each session will last about 30 minutes using Zoom breakout rooms for each topic. We will have 3 different sessions (about 90-100 minutes of total discussion). Therefore, you will get to choose from 15-20 topics during this unconference, so chances are good that you’ll find something interesting!
