Podcast #103 – Matthew E. May, “The Shibumi Strategy”

16
0

My guest for Episode #103 is Matthew E. May, returning to talk about his latest book, a business fable called The Shibumi Strategy: A Powerful Way to Create Meaningful Change. I've been reading the book and have found it to be a thought-provoking about your own personal effectiveness in a complex world.


This is also available as Video Podcast #12 if you want to watch us talk.

Some of the topics we discuss include:

  • What is “Shibumi” and where does the term come from?
  • What's the context for lean practitioners or students of Lean and TPS?
  • Did you reach a point of Shibumi while writing this book or in your other work?
  • Any particular reason you chose a car dealership as the job and the setting? Is it because it's stereotypically a very numbers-driven “get it done” setting?

To point others to this, use the simple URL: www.leanblog.org/103.
