Podcast #249 – Steve Leuschel on “Lean Culture Change”

steve leuschelMy guest for episode #249 of the podcast is Steve Leuschel, author of the book Lean Culture Change: Using a Daily Management System. You can find Steve on Twitter as @stevenleuschel.

You might remember a post from January that included an excerpt from his book on “huddles.”

In this episode, we discuss topics including his greatest influences, the lessons he learned from Rodger Lewis (a former Toyota general manager), “mutual trust,” PDCA cycles, daily huddles, and more. What’s the potential of a Lean management system and why is it difficult to get organizations and leaders to embrace a holistic system like that?
