Blog Holiday: Christmas Week, “Gemba Claus is Comin’ to Town” Song

6

I'm taking a few days off from blogging. Best wishes to you and yours for the holidays. I'll be back sporadically next week maybe and I'll be back for real in the new year.

Here's a look back to the song “Gemba Claus is Comin' to Town” that I wrote and my friend Steve Sholtes performed last year. Click play in the player below or click here for the full text lyrics.

    How is that a lean mantlescape? Or is that your idea of 5S-claus?

      The picture was just a picture. Meant to represent Christmas more than it would represent any Lean concept…

    Just heard (tree week late). It’s a very nice jingle and I’ll send to all my colleagues. The picture is fascinating, too.
