LeanBlog Podcast #64 – Jamie Flinchbaugh, “Coaching”

JamieHere is LeanBlog Podcast #64, again with Jamie Flinchbaugh, co-author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Lean: Lessons from the Road. In this Podcast, we talk about the role of coaching in a Lean transformation effort. What is the difference between coaching toward a solution and coaching to learn a method, for example?

This was also the first attempt at a “video podcast”, this is the audio from that. The video, if desired, can be found here. The video admittedly doesn’t add too much to the discussion, but it’s an experiment and I’ll continue to put audio from the discussions here in the audio podcast series if I do more videos.
