Mark Graban's - Lean Healthcare, Lean Hospitals, Healthcare Kaizen, Lean Thinking, Lean Manufacturing, Toyota Production System

Welcome to the Blog, David Meier


As you may know, if you're a regular Lean Blog reader, this isn't a solo venture. I'm happy to have other bloggers on the site and I'm happy to add one more: David Meier, co-author of the outstanding book The Toyota Way Fieldbook and co-author (again, with Dr. Jeff Liker) of the upcoming Toyota Talent. His first post will appear tomorrow morning, so stay tuned.

I've emailed and talked with David a number of times over the past year and he has been a good friend to me within the lean world. I'm hoping that he will contribute to the blog as time allows and we are planning on doing a Podcast interview in the near future.

Here is a link to David's bio at his site, Lean Associates. I like David's perspective on lean since he was a Group Leader at the Toyota Georgetown (TMMK) plant and has worked hard to share real and practical TPS approaches and methods with the lean community. Welcome to the Blog!
