LIMRA International
President and Chief Executive Officer, Lean Methods Group

David Silverstein is a highly regarded strategist, innovator, author and public speaker who enjoys working with clients to tackle their toughest problems. He combines his uniquely extensive set of skills, developed through never-ending education, research and a broad range of hands-on experiences to offer his clients bold and well-informed insight.

David co-founded Breakthrough Management Group in 1999 and grew the company into an internationally recognized strategic consulting firm, actively serving clients in more than 20 countries. In 2016, he shut down BMGI and launched the Lean Methods Group as a more focused firm with a somewhat smaller global footprint. This also offered him the opportunity to found the 501(c)(3) non-profit in an effort to transform the US healthcare system. A frequent speaker and media source on topics related to innovation, strategy and economic and global trends, David is best known for his deep insights and ability to see the common threads among seemingly disparate concepts while at the same time making complex subjects easy to understand without losing their significance. He has been featured in or has written for The Washington Post, The Economist, Inc. Magazine, The Robb Report, CNBC, NPR, Fox News and many other media outlets. David has also published several books on innovation, business management and executive leadership, including the most recent book in his Connect the Dots series, Three Steps Ahead. He also co-authored The Innovator’s Toolkit: 50+ Techniques for Predictable and Sustainable Organic Growth and Insourcing Innovation: How to Achieve Competitive Excellence Using TRIZ.
