I was going through some old files and came across a pocket card we handed out back in 2003 or so. It was used in conjunction with our “how to walk the gemba” coaching sessions that we did with the lean staff, and then taught them to do with leaders. There is a pretty long …

        I do enjoy watching football, so this headline caught my eye: “Why Are N.F.L. Scores Scores So High This Season?” If you know me and my book Measures of Success, you know my first question was: “Is it a statistical signal worth explaining?” From the article: “N.F.L. teams have been scoring points at an unprecedented […]

            There are many important and valuable life lessons that we can gather from the adventurous life of one of history’s most famous pioneers. Christopher Columbus had many ups and downs in his life, but he never let that stop him from what he wanted to achieve. I think we can learn most from Christopher Columbus strong and brilliant character. We can learn from his innovative thinking, persistence, and his mental strength. Columbus was definitely a man to be admired and deserves all the credit and...

              Since I've started two new podcast series during the pandemic, it's been admittedly a little chaotic about what gets published when. It was probably a mistake to not have a predictable schedule for each. I've been recording so many great episodes of “My Favorite Mistake” that I decided to make this a twice-a-week series. So […]

                  Home Improvement with Minitab Workspace's Idea Map, Project Prioritization Matrix and Gantt Chart

                  Earlier this year, as I was thinking about all the improvement projects on my needs and wants list, I was unsure where to start. Which projects should be tackled first? Did I capture everything in my potential projects list? And once I decide which projects to schedule, how can I keep on track and visualize progress?

                    On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom.

Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.


                    "We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon."  ...
