Hi, Dr. Les Muda here. You might know me from DoctorMuda.com and my occasional “guest appearances” here, including the one post I was brave enough to write here at LeanBlog.org under my own name.

Technical Update on Lean Blog Emails & Problems with MailChimp RSS Feeds & Outlook – Root Cause Found, Problem Solved?

Today, I’m announcing an evolution of my work life: doing less with the Lean Enterprise Institute, doing more consulting and speaking, and starting to help build an exciting startup company, KaiNexus. The first 16 years of my career has been an interesting journey: General Motors, Dell, Honeywell and a total of 10 years in the […]

My main announcement is that I’m happy to say that I am working on a revised edition of my Shingo Award winning book, Lean Hospitals: Improving Quality, Patient Safety, and Employee Satisfaction. Those of you […]
