Upcoming Speaking Engagements, Webinars, and Radio through April 2011
I have a busy speaking schedule here in the next few months and many events are open for public registration. I hope to see you at one or more of these events. Well, I won't “see” you at the webinar (or vice versa), but hope to interact with you.

Lean Austin – January 17
I'm giving a talk in my former home of Austin to a group that's primarily focused on lean startups and lean software. I'm going to share some of my experiences about translating lean from manufacturing to healthcare, lessons learned, “L.A.M.E.” things to look out for, etc. We'll have a lot of active discussion, as I certainly can't tell them how to do lean software.
FormFast Webinar – January 20
You can hear me give a webinar presentation for lean healthcare, focused on lean as an organizational strategy. So many organizations think lean is just a bunch of tools or a collection of projects. I'll try to set the record straight and offer examples of ideas of how the best lean healthcare organizations aim higher and outperform the rest on quality and cost. This webinar is sponsored by the software company FormFast. — Archive of the webinar

Lean Industry and Healthcare Event, Dallas – March 11, AM
This is an invitation-only event that I'm co-producing with TMAC and Quality Texas.

Contact me if you're a Dallas-Fort Worth area person who is interested in attending or visit www.leanblog.org/DFW.
