Upcoming Charity Auction with Norman Bodek


Some of you might remember that I was offering autographed book copies or autographed labels for “Lean Hospitals” as a fundraiser for the Josie King Foundation (an organization that promotes patient safety). I've had a few people make donations for autographed labels. The offer still stands (again, the link for that is here).

Brainstorming with Norman (before we recorded what will be episode #52 of the LeanBlog Podcast… plus bonus material that will make for another episode), we came up with a way of raising more $$ for the Josie King Foundation.

I'm going to produce a 4 audio-CD set of Norman's collected Podcast interviews. That's four full CD's of Norman's wisdom and thoughts on Lean. There are going to be just three autographed versions of this CD set, a very limited edition — one for Norman to keep, one for me, and one that we'll auction off on eBay in the near future.

The package will not only include the autographed CD set, but you'll have your choice of one of Norman's PCS Press books personally autographed for you.

If there is demand from people to purchase CD sets, we may offer those for sale, but we'll do the auction first and one winning bidder will have a very unique collector's item set – the autographed CD set AND the autographed book.

Stay tuned — I'll let you know when more podcast episodes will be released (probably starting next Monday, Oct 6) and when the auction will take place on eBay.

  1. Hi everyone – update on this. I am still planning on doing the auction, just working through some required red tape from eBay, paperwork that’s required to do a charity auction on their site. Stay tuned…
