Lean Careers Survey & New Aggregation Site from Tim Noble


I wanted to share a few tidbits from one of my lean recruiter friends – Tim Noble of The Avery Point Group.

First off is his annual study of the market for lean and six sigma jobs, this year titled “Lean Outpacing Six Sigma as the New Dominant Force in Corporate Continuous Improvement.”   You can read this year's survey as well as old surveys going back to 2005. The general trend is that lean has been outpacing six sigma in job posting popularity over the past few years.

I'm also linking to his new project – an aggregation site called Lean Sigma Buzz. There are other sites out there that compile lean news and other content, including Kevin Meyer's lean.am, Michael Marx's Social Six Sigma (which includes lean content), and Jamie Flinchbaugh's lean blog aggregator. Good time savers? Which is your favorite?
