MONDAY: 2 PERS 1 MACHINE. TODAY: 1 PERSON 2 MACHINES On a Thursday afternoon in the summer of 1997 I sent that pager message (remember pagers?) to Rick from the factory where I had spent a week working with Mr. Shimura of Shingijutsu and Reiko, his interpreter. I knew that Rick would be wrapping up …

    On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.

      Here is an article I first published on Linked seven years ago this week. This is lightly edited and updated. We've all seen it happening around us. We've probably all done it. What's that? Jumping to solutions. I hope the illustration that I created, above, gives you a bit of pause… not just to laugh […]

        Six Data Preparation Tasks You Can Do With Minitab Connect

        We know all too well that manually converting thousands, let alone millions, of rows of data into actionable insights is no walk in the park. For many analysts, making sense of raw data can take hours of manipulating, cleaning, and prepping in Excel spreadsheets using pivot tables, transformations, and VLOOKUPS – especially if they’re less familiar with technical coding languages. Not to mention that manual data prep leaves more room for errors. Ultimately, the hours of labor and risks to data quality are why many lean on developers and IT partners to handle their data prep using SQL or an advanced database coding system.

              This might be a mistake that I'm making. I hope it's not a mistake. It's an experiment. While there is a financial component to writing and publishing a book, I think every author ultimately wants their book to be read. Better yet, put to use. My book Measures of Success: React Less, Lead Better, Improve […]

                    In this post, I'm going to share some reflections from one of my workplaces, some things that occurred last week. I'm going to be vague, so forgive me for that. It feels right to be less specific in this case, or at least that's the cautious (and maybe respectful) thing to do. When wearing one […]
