So Where Did Scott Go?


If you had been following Scott McDuffee's weekly “Lean Leap to Healthcare” posts that documented his attempts to transition from “lean manufacturing” into “lean healthcare,” you might wonder where he went.

I'm hoping Scott will do another “close the loop” post at some point. But, his blog absence is explained by his acceptance of a lean manufacturing role — yes, in industry, not in healthcare.

Scott's a great guy and I sincerely hope he will eventually get a chance to share his skills, experience, and wisdom in a healthcare setting.

If you're interested in such a leap, check out his previous posts, or click here for a free networking site I created for lean professionals trying to move into healthcare.

    I exchanged emails with Scott this past week and as we say here in Iowa, "He's as happy as a pig in… mud." Glad he landed well. Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
