The Maryland World Class Consortia’s Lean Peer Groups, in partnership with MD MEP, are designed to help participant organizations build active cultures of continuous improvement.
The peer group approach provides a unique and powerful way to share experiences and learn from others.
Participating company leaders from across the region work together to refine and reenergize their continuing Lean Transformations by networking with, and learning from, others in the regional group who are committed to developing a Lean culture. Lean Peer Group members assess their current conditions, learn how to address improvement opportunities, share experiences and information, learn from MWCC staff and guest speakers, and learn from other participants.
Lean Peer Groups are open to MWCC member organizations, as well as to non-members. Lean Peer Group participation includes a one-year complementary membership in the Maryland World Class Consortia.

“Working with the Lean Peer Group has been a very rewarding experience. It has given us a way to discuss and compare our Lean efforts with other Companies in the area. As a result we have been able to develop a Lean culture that is beginning to take root and grow throughout our organization.”
Plant Manager, Caldwell Manufacturing Co.
“Being part of a LEAN peer group who is traveling the same road as yourself allows you to continuously learn, identify gaps in your own LEAN journey, and recognize your own successes! As a leader responsible for a LEAN transformation, I must continuously learn in order to move my organization forward. There is no better way than belonging to a peer group that shares best practices in an open networking environment.”
