More discussion about the future of Iowa manufacturing, with a focus on lean. Iowa has been hurt with recent news about Maytag, among other companies who have been scaling back or closing factories.
It's nice to see lean highlighted in a general news publication.

The Lean Enterprise system shines as one of the leading initiatives employed by Iowa manufacturers today that consistently succeeds in producing effective results.“
The Gemba Pantarei blog also had an item about lean government in Iowa.
