 SoCal Lean Network

Learning and LEANing Through Sharing

Welcome to the home page for the So Cal Lean Network - the place for all things Lean in San Diego and Southern California!

A Message From The Chair: 


The SoCal Lean Network has a new website!

We are moving from socalleannetwork.org to socalleannetwork.com.

There will be a re-direct to the new website.

As part of the new website, San Diego based companies and people will be featured in webinars and podcasts. From the existing website content, we will still feature all information including any job postings, local consultants and current events.

Even though we cannot connect in person, there are lots of ways to plug into the Lean Community virtually! 

Check out a few opportunities below:

Upcoming conference: 

UC San Diego’s Process Palooza – 5/8 – featuring process improvement in education

There are a few other online learning webinars and training opportunities: 

June 1st: Lean Six Sigma Leader Course at UC San Diego! Are your people jumping to solution and not solving problems? Do they want to throw money and people at problems instead of applying process improvement? Take this course to learn more about growing problem-solvers. 

Do you have a job posting you would like to post on SoCalLeanNetwork? Do you have an opportunity for a virtual tour you would like to make available? Do you have a summit/conference you would like to let our members know about? Send a note to Tracy ORourke at tracy@jitcafe.com.
