Accelerator Program


The Accelerator Program is designed for companies sending teams of 10+, 25+ or 50+ to the AME International Conference.

As your company progresses on its lean journey, you've certainly realized the importance of a strong collaborative effort from all levels of your organization. The more people from your team who share the AME conference experience, the more impact it will have on your company’s goals and objectives. Send a team to the AME International Conference and experience dramatic impacts on your culture and journey.

For teams of 10+, 25+ or 50+, the Accelerator Program provides the perfect forum for maximizing an organization’s efforts to improve their processes and positively impact their culture. For example: A large collaborative effort at the conference often sparks more animated daily debrief meetings that help identify hidden barriers that are holding companies back. Accelerator Program participants experience the power of lean and deliver greater customer value. AME offers numerous conference and yearly benefits available only to Accelerators.
