Submit Your Lean Questions for a Q&A Podcast & Book FAQ

sensitive noise / obvious 2Do you have questions about Lean leadership or Lean healthcare? I’m going to do a special Podcast (or series of them) featuring your questions and answers from myself and/or my previous podcast guests. I could also use suggestions for an FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) document & web page I’m putting together for Lean Hospitals.

If you have a question, you can post it as a comment on this post. Or, you can contact me via this web form. Let me know what personal information (name, role, org) that I can or can’t share, or if I should treat it as an anonymous question.

Better yet, call and leave your question as a voice mail at 817-776-LEAN (or Skype ID ‘mgraban’). If you leave a voice mail, you are granting permission to use audio of your question in the podcast(s).

If your question is for a specific past guest, I will work to get an answer. Or, I might bounce general questions off of frequent guests like Bob Emiliani, Norman Bodek, Jamie Flinchbaugh, or others.

    My question: If we have developed a Lean process, but people aren’t following it, what can we do to get participation/compliance?

    Mark,

    I would love a podcast with a “Let’s blow up the plant” theme.
    It was a topic in podcast #95 with Norman Bodek. . So I would really love to hear you philosophize about the “blow up” suggestion.

    Niels.
