Reader Quiz – Guess the Lean Blog Global Readership


Here's something new to try — a way of giving away a copy of my book Lean Hospitals: Improving Quality, Patient Safety, and Employee Satisfaction.

What percentage of Lean Blog readers are from the U.S. (or at least a U.S. server)?   What country is #2 in readership? Come take a guess…Take your best guess using the poll box below and see what others are guessing. Answer will be revealed on January 18.

[polldaddy poll=2520148]

To have a chance to win the free copy of my book, leave a comment on the blog (with your email address) with your guess as to the country who is #2 in readership. I thought just guessing the U.S. percentage might not be a good contest in and of itself since the voting might lead to the right answer. The contest to guess the #2 country. I'll reveal that and the U.S. percentage on the 18th. Note: if more than one person picks the #2 country correctly, I'll do a random drawing of those people to choose one winner.

In an ironic twist, if you're outside the U.S., I will send you $40 in an amazon gift certificate or via PayPal. International Shipping is outrageously expensive for a book!

    I’m going to go out on a limb and risk being ridiculed. My guess is the US comes in second, after Canada.

  2. Lucas Dickson says

    i would of said the U.K. but since its already taken I’ll say for my offical entry that the 2nd place goes to Germany.

  3. Alan Gleghorn says

    I’m leaning toward England. For some reason I’ve seen several seminars and meetings focused on lean there.

  4. Mark Graban says

    If there’s a “tie” in terms of multiple people picking the correct country, I’ll do a random drawing for one person.

  5. Jan Jochmann says

    Well, I am sure that it won’t be my country (Slovakia) :-)
    My tip is also United Kingdom.


  6. Mark Welch says

    I’ve gotta go with Canada as #2 behind the U.S.

    And Mark, has a career in always marketing been a 2nd passion of yours?!? (kidding)
