Traffic “Flow”

This is a magical video on the power of Flow. Flow is one of the major tenants of understanding and becoming a lean thinker. When ever thing stop and start waste appears, conversely efficiency is gained when we work towards Flow. Enjoy and the next time you enter a round about cheer and thank a Lean thinker! Thanks Michelle. for sending me this video.

Newt Gingrich

Please watch this Video. Newt Gingrich is wrong on one point. We should not teach lean to every member of congress, we should DEMAND that they are Lean experts in order to be a part of congress. We don’t have the time to teach them Lean.

Lean the American Way

This commentary by Angie Vogt appeared on Red County:

During his concession speech, without a moments hesitation, Paul Akers heartily encouraged his followers in the state of Washington to support the fight against Patty Murray by supporting Dino Rossi. Then, in case nobody heard him and in contrast to what is getting to be a tiresome game with Didier’s refusal to do the same, Akers released this statement yesterday:

Dear Washington State Conservatives,
This letter is to confirm that Paul Akers For US Senate whole heartedly endorses Dino Rossi for US Senate. I encourage all concerned citizens to rally behind Dino Rossi in his bid to defeat Patty Murray in the US Senate. We have an unusual opportunity. The wind is at our back. We must unite and not allow our opponent to have even one more day to relish in any division that is amongst us.

In today’s political climate, words are cheap, so I think it’s far more interesting to see what the candidates are doing a week after their hard fought primaries. As of yesterday I know Clint Didier’s campaign manager, Kathy Serkes, was on David Boze¬†explaining how Clint¬†has been misunderstood, regarding his lack of support for Dino. It sounded an awful lot like back peddling to me. I felt myself cringing for her, doing¬†Clint’s dirty work, trying to restore some measure of dignity after this ugly, annoying chapter in post-primary election history.

What a contrast to my friend, Paul Akers. Not¬†wasting any time licking his wounds or feeling sorry for himself, (and wasting is the operative word here), Paul demonstrates that his passion for stopping government waste is not about him, but about our country. His immediate response to loss was not to navel gaze, not to analyze what went wrong nor to create a wave of press attention or post election drama. Paul doesn’t waste time on ego restoration. The people have spoken and he respects their voice. Instead he has immediately invested his energy into a new initiative called Lean America.

Paul is pressing forward with what he is passionate about:¬† finding a way to introduce and advocate a proven process (Lean) into the hearts and minds of American citizens. As a businessman he knows that identifying and cutting out waste is necessary for fiscal survival. He believes the same about our government and once again, he’s putting his own heart and soul behind it.

Get ready for the ride. Paul is taking his message to the Glenn Beck 8-28 Restoring Honor Rally in Washington D.C. this Saturday, with a live broadcast of his radio show “American Innovator.” You can count on hearing more about Lean America as he continues to join the fight against the culture of waste that has infected our government.

Restoring America Rally in Washington, D.C.

On Saturday, August 28 I had the privilege of attending the “Restoring America Rally” that took place in Washington, D.C. I was amazed at the shear volume and passion of the people present. This video shows the magnitude of those present.
