More discussion about the future of Iowa manufacturing, with a focus on lean. Iowa has been hurt with recent news about Maytag, among other companies who have been scaling back or closing factories.
It’s nice to see lean highlighted in a general news publication.
“Currently, Lean Enterprise processes are finding their way into Iowa health-care facilities, academia and government agencies such as the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

The Gemba Pantarei blog also had an item about lean government in Iowa.
