New Post on ‘The Lean Edge’ – Lean and Innovation

Continuing my participation on TheLeanEdge.org, I answered a new question about Lean and innovation.

My answer can be found here, and I managed to work in a mention of the good folks at VIBCO…

  1. Mark – I agree with your comments on the topic of innovation and lean-thinking. This past March I attended a useful seminar conducted the CEO of Memorial Hospital and Health System in South Bend, IN. (I wrote about this on my on-line journal – http://gembawalkabout.tumblr.com – under the heading of “Chicago Walkabout”). Not sure if you have heard of them. I plan to attend their “Day at the Innovation Cafe” in July and will let you know what I learned. Perhaps the CEO (Phil Newbold) would be a good interview for your podcast? Mike
