Members come together to explore lean thinking and other enterprise improvement methods, exchange best practices and network in order to advance their careers and improve the competitiveness and overall value of their organizations. We offer a forum whereby members can stay current with new and developing management and operational techniques. There is also the opportunity to stay ahead of the competition by reading Target magazine and Target Online which is full of case studies and how-tos of practitioner-implemented process improvements. We hold annual international and regional conferences, monthly webinars, and over 100 seminars, workshops and tours each year.
