Conversation Between John Shook & @EricRies on Putting the #Lean in #LeanStartup

by Mark Graban on December 2, 2013 · 3 comments

The Thanksgiving weekend was a great opportunity to catch up on some reading and viewing that had accumulated in my browser and inbox.

One thing I really enjoyed was a conversation (in advance of next week’s Lean Startup conference) between Eric Ries and LEI’s John Shook.

If you’re not a “Lean Startup” person, I think you’ll find this to be a nice summary of some of John’s early experiences with Toyota and NUMMI. John and Eric also discuss Lean culture and management principles that would be applicable for folks in healthcare, manufacturing, or any industry.

I’m speaking in a breakout session at the conference next Monday. I’ll post a bit of a preview of the talk here on Friday… I hope you’ll come to the talk if you’re attending, as I’ll be talking about “Kaizen” (continuous improvement) and “respect for people” in healthcare, but in a way that will hopefully be relevant and helpful to people in startups.
