My LinkedIn Post on Bad Toast & Bad Management


Quick announcement before today's post… on Friday, I'll be leading and participating in a “Twitter chat” about Lean and healthcare. If you do the Twitter thing, I hope you can join us.

Previously on LinkedIn, I've written about Kaizen in a wine bar and the need for restaurants to not blame employees for problems.

Yesterday, I published my 50th post for their Influencers program:

This Restaurant Server Sadly Explains a Widespread Management Problem…

I hope it's thought provoking about your own workplace.

My hypothesis is that a restaurant that was run as a Lean culture would greatly outperform the average restaurant.

Maybe I'll have to test that someday.
