Video Podcast #12 – Matt May, “The Shibumi Strategy”

In my latest Video Podcast, my guest 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 be a thought-provoking about your own personal effectiveness in a complex world.

You can read more about the book at Matt's website: www.ShibumiStrategy.com. You can also view a separate “video trailer” for the book here.

Here's the video:

Some of the topics we discuss include:

Post continues after ad...
  • 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?

This will be available shortly in the Video Podcast series and you get get an Audio-Only version here (Podcast #103) as part of my Audio Podcast series.
