Welcome to the Blog World, John Shook!


LEAN.org – Lean Enterprise Institute

John Shook is one of my favorite people in the Lean world. I've learned more about Toyota-style leadership from him than anyone else (the learning-to-time-exposed-to-John ratio is very, very high).

John has a new book out (and I still owe a full review to you here on the blog… I'm re-reading some sections) MANAGING TO LEARN: USING THE A3 MANAGEMENT PROCESS TO SOLVE PROBLEMS, GAIN AGREEMENT, MENTOR, & LEAD.

The Lean Enterprise Institute has an archived webinar with John (Part 1 here, with a 2nd part to come on Nov 13).

But back to the title of this post — John now has a blog on the LEI site. The main page is here and he has four posts (weekly, it appears):

One final note – John has agreed to do a Podcast with me in the near future, so stay tuned for that.

  1. Hi Mark,
    Hi John,

    Thanks for that great link:-))

    You see, even the “big shots” in lean thinking are on blogging, using the new technology from the lean perspective.

    Just got to know about the blog about a dear member of my lean thinking group (http://www.xing.com/net/lean) Paul Bayer.

    Best regards from Leipzig
