In my latest Video Podcast, my guest is Matthew E. May, returning to talk about his latest book, a business fable called The Shibumi Strategy: A Powerful Way to Create Meaningful Change. I’ve been reading the book and have found it be a thought-provoking about your own personal effectiveness in a complex world.
Here’s the video:
Some of the topics we discuss include:
- What is “Shibumi” and where does the term come from?
- What’s the context for lean practitioners or students of Lean and TPS?
- Did you reach a point of Shibumi while writing this book or in your other work?
- Any particular reason you chose a car dealership as the job and the setting? Is it because it’s stereotypically a very numbers-driven “get it done” setting?
