Filipe Marques, of Torre made this video reflecting on our time in San Diego as we trained for the Ironman.
Eliminating waste, focusing on the customer and continuous improvement. See how the Frisco Library is putting concepts from Lean Culture into practice (and improving customer experience!).
Over eight years ago I had my first encounter with Harry Kenworthy. I can still remember his words as they resonate in my head today every bit as much as they did then. “How do you make lean stick? You must set an expectation and inspect the expectation and celebrate every accomplishment.” So practical it hurts! Lean Government Now! is exactly the same practical and to-the-point book. If you’re looking for theory, this probably is not the best book for you, but if you’re looking for a pragmatic approach to making government (or for that matter, any organization) more effective using powerful Lean concepts, Harry has unlocked the door! ~Paul
We watched this in our morning meeting. Such good words.
Paul Akers discusses how he mentally prepares for an ironman. Guess what…it is all in your head!
The Annual Global Lean Leadership Summit was hosted Cambridge Engineering this year. The Summit has a strong spirit of generosity, of giving back to society by freely sharing best practices with one another and Cambridge Engineering has this in spades! Below are some random images from the event.
