    Next step Filled with new knowledge and energy, we head back to our organizations to experiment our new findings.

    Insights from Fellow LPPDE Participant Mats Ramkvist R&D Manager ABB AB | PPTR/DT Sweden When asked to provide thoughts on his LPPDE-Europe Exchange experience (with hopes of encouraging his peers in North America to attend the September event) this is what one Conference participant had to say... "As I am the one responsible for challenging our organization to adapt lean innovation thinking. The biggest benefits for me was the good ideas, energy and inspiration to continue my work implementing lean product development locally and globally within our product group. The Exchange of experiences in lean product development (among conference participants) gave me more courage to take the next step. It was also really interesting to hear that many of the challenges that other companies are facing are the same as my challenges. This provides me with some ease of mind. The most powerful insight was that lean is actually all about continuous learning and it's up to me and my team to learn as much as possible every day." - Mats Ramkvist
