Parody Audio: Charlie Sheen Calls to Talk Lean Healthcare?

Now actor Charlie Sheen has been all over the news lately, giving interviews to practically anyone with a microphone. This is the type of “news” I normally try to tune out, yet alone blog about.

Somehow, he stumbled across my “Lean Line” phone number to talk about Lean Healthcare, although I suspect he may have been looking for the street drug called “lean.”

He claimed to have spent his hiatus from TV working to teach and implement the “Lean” methodology at hospitals around Los Angeles. Listen to the audio and judge for yourself – is he pulling our legs? Is this just another Hollywood publicity stunt? Is he the type of Lean consultant you would want around? ¬†Does he follow the Toyota “respect for people” philosophy?

Ok, it’s an early April Fool’s Joke…. that was audio taken from an interview he gave to ABC’s Good Morning America show.

Check out the rest of my Lean Parodies.
