LeanBlog Video Podcast #6 – Matt May, "In Pursuit of Elegance"

This podcast is a continuation of my earlier interview (Video Podcast #4) with Matthew E. May, author of the Shingo Prize winning book The Elegant Solution: Toyota’s Formula for Mastering Innovation.

His most recent book, available since May, is In Pursuit of Elegance: Why the Best Ideas Have Something Missing. Matt’s website is www.inpursuitofelegance.com. Here, we talk about The Sopranos and In-n-Out Burger, how they are “elegant” in their design.

You can also go to YouTube to watch (the full series can be found there.)

    The first part of the book is powerful. I applied the ideas to education.
