"Toyota Talent" out April 29
This has been an exciting week for me. Monday, I met David Mann, author of Creating A Lean Culture, in person and had a chance to hear him speak and to speak with him at length. As I've mentioned before, his book is outstanding and has really been having a positive impact on folks in healthcare who are working to move from “Lean project” to “Lean culture.”
Today, I was able to meet and talk with David Meier, another friend of the blog, sometimes poster, and co-author (with Jeff Liker) of The Toyota Way Fieldbook and the upcoming Toyota Talent. I was fortunate to read a preview copy of Toyota Talent and I'm sure it will be a very useful addition to the lean library. I'll try to post a formal review ASAP.
Both Davids were generous with their time and their thoughts, which I appreciate. I'd encourage you to check out their Podcasts (linked to their names above) and their books.
