I was able to meet Natalie at the recent ASQ Lean and Six Sigma Conference, where she was also a presenter.
While I was a bit resistant at first to the “for Dummies” being associated with Lean (given that “dummy” is a sort of disrespectful word), I came around when I read the first edition and found it to be a fun, solid overview of Lean concepts and a great first read for people who are new to Lean. In the podcast, Natalie shares what's new in the second edition and shares some of her history and experience with Lean, including some time learning at the famed NUMMI plant while working for GM.
