Panel Built, Inc Hosts LEAN Consortium

Richard Sarrell

Just a few years ago, the Georgia Tech Enterprise Innovation Instituteannounced that it had begun plans to expand its Lean Consortium operations to North Georgia. On Thursday, September 20, that goal was fully accomplished. Panel Built Inc. hosted a Lean Consortium at the United Community Bank in Blairsville, GA. The class was taught by one of Georgia Tech’s expert Lean Counselors.


The Georgia Tech Enterprise Innovation Institute’s Lean Consortiums “help companies, entrepreneurs, economic developers and communities improve their competitiveness through the application of science, technology and innovation” through their industrial assistance programs. The consortiums provide a way for business leaders to come together for the purpose of learning how to maximize their business’s potential, and this consortium was no exception.

Beginning at 9 A.M. and convening around 1 P.M., Panel Built’s consortium was a dense, fast-paced lesson catered to small town industry and similar businesses. The consortium was a great success, and every attendee left with excellent advice on how to maximize efficiency in the business world.

However, the consortium was not all figures and presentations. Come on, we’re Panel Built. We know how to have a good time.

And we sure do know good food.


Along with hosting, Panel Built also catered the consortium, and the food was fantastic. Install Manager Shane Wright prepared a spread that blew everyone away. Shane marinated and grilled Jerk Chicken and Jerk Mahi Mahi complete with a mango sauce. Shane also prepared massive fruit spreads and a homemade black bean and corn salsa with cilantro and onions.

Needless to say, the leftovers were immediately devoured by those who were not able to attend.
