A Word from the Lean Blog Sponsors


Dear Lean Blog Readers:

I try hard to not bombard you with commercial messages, but I do want to take a minute to recognize three of the sponsors that allow me to bring these free resources to you, like the blog, the podcasts, and the video podcasts.

American LED-gible, Inc. is a long-time sponsor the blog and they have renewed their sponsorship. You may have noticed their two new ads on the blog. They are a family-run, Ohio-based manufacturer of digital displays and “andon” lights that can be used in Lean Manufacturing settings. I've met the president of the company and I can say they are nice people, you should check them out here or here.


This is more a link-sharing relationship, but I do have a new partnership with and ad from The World Health Care Congress 3rd Annual Leadership Summit on Process Improvement and Business Excellence in Health Care. Whew, that's a mouthful. The event will be held in Chicago, July 28-30, 2009. You can read more about it here. I'm able to offer you a discount that will SAVE you $200 on the current registration rate when you mention PROMO CODE: UYC634! (Not valid on current registrations).

The Congress will have speakers from a number of well-known “lean hospitals” including Theda Clark Medical Center, Virginia Mason Medical Center, and the Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative. Jeffrey Liker has also been confirmed as a speaker. I want to thank them for helping promote the Lean Blog in their web and printed advertisements.


Another long-time and returning sponsor is Gemba Research. They are advertising their new Gemba Academy (on-line Lean training videos featuring our good friend, Ron Pereira), and their Lean study missions to Japan.

Thanks to all of my sponsors, previous and current!
