This is an interview with Dr. Sami Bahri, D.D.S., a dentist from Jacksonville, Florida. He is a pioneer in using Lean methods in the management of his dental practice. The book documents his learning journey for himself and his office staff as they learned how to apply Lean in a very non-traditional setting.
His book, Follow the Learner, is available from the Lean Enterprise Institute. You can also watch an archived webinar that he presented (archive here), along with some text Q&A follow ups that were recently posted.
There is also an audio podcast version of this discussion available as episode #69 at www.leanpodcast.org. For audio podcast episodes, please visit www.leanpodcast.org. For video podcasts, visit www.leanvideopodcast.org.
You can also go to YouTube to watch (the full series can be found there.)
