John Shook is one of my favorite people in the Lean world. I’ve learned more about Toyota-style leadership from him than anyone else (the learning-to-time-exposed-to-John ratio is very, very high).
John has a new book out (and I still owe a full review to you here on the blog… I’m re-reading some sections) MANAGING TO LEARN: USING THE A3 MANAGEMENT PROCESS TO SOLVE PROBLEMS, GAIN AGREEMENT, MENTOR, & LEAD.
The Lean Enterprise Institute has an archived webinar with John (Part 1 here, with a 2nd part to come on Nov 13).
But back to the title of this post — John now has a blog on the LEI site. The main page is here and he has four posts (weekly, it appears):
- What Is Lean Management?
- No Excuses
- The A3 Process — Discovery at Toyota and What It Can Do for You
- “Our people are our most important asset”…Really?
One final note – John has agreed to do a Podcast with me in the near future, so stay tuned for that.
