LeanBlog Podcast #36 – Norm Bodek on the new Shingo Book

norman-bodekLeanBlog Podcast #36 once again features our friend and frequent guest, Norman Bodek, noted lean author, consultant, and President of PCS Press. In this episode, Norman talks about his most recent publication, a text by the legendary Shigeo Shingo, called Kaizen and the Art of Creative Thinking – The Scientific Thinking Mechanism, as well as future publications he is working on. This was recorded back in 2007, before the book was published (it has now been out in publication for a few months, I apologize for the delay in getting this podcast released).

    Hi Mark,
    hi Norman,

    thanks for the great podcast on this exceptional book:-)

    @Norman, the mentioning of setting up discussion groups just makes me mention the group “Lean Thinking” at http://www.xing.com/net/lean. To get the ideas into practice I organize the 2nd meeting (Lean Thinkers Meeting) in Frankfurt (in an open space format) with people from the group in order to exchange ideas, try out certain things like lean games and alike.

    Everybody -even though it is a more European focused group right now expanding slowly around the world;-)- is invited to take part of the discussion.

    Just leave me a PM, if you would like to participate and I will send you an invitation.

    Cheers

    Ralf

    PS.: Mark the podcast has pushed me a little bit towards finishing the review;-) THANKS;-))
