#TBT: A Year of @KaiNexus Webinars, January through June, on Various #Lean Topics


screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-7-20-17-amOne of the things I do for KaiNexus is produce and host our monthly free webinar series. You can view all of the recordings from the past few years via our on-demand library.

They are also available via YouTube and this playlist.

As we enter the last month of the year, I thought I'd look back on this year's webinars, sharing YouTube videos of them below.

If you have ideas for future webinars, please leave a comment below or contact me.

January: Practical Problem Solving

Jon Miller kicked off the year by having a discussion with me about Toyota problem solving principles and methods. Why is it important to “go slow to go fast?” You can view slides via this page.

You can also listen to my podcast with Jon about his book Creating a Kaizen Culture:

Podcast #186 – Jon Miller Discusses His Book Creating a Kaizen Culture, Engaging Everybody in Continuous Improvement


February: Getting Buy In

Greg Jacobson, co-founder and CEO of KaiNexus, and I gave a presentation on strategies for getting “buy in” for change and continuous improvement. View slides here.


March: Lean Leadership

Jacob Stoller, author of The Lean CEO, gave a presentation titled “The 3 Primary Assumptions of Successful Lean Leaders.” View slides here.

You can also listen to my podcast with him about his book:

Podcast #221 – @JacobStoller, “The #Lean CEO”


April: Lean Management Systems

Michael Lombard talked about “ideal management behaviors” and creating “A Lean Management System Supported By KaiNexus.” View the slides here.


May: Lean for Professional Services

My Canadian Lean lawyer friends, David and Karen Skinner, gave a webinar about Lean for professional services firms, titled “Creating a Lean Foundation for Innovation in Professional Services Firms.” View the slides.

Here is my podcast with them from 2014:

Podcast #185 – Karen Dunn Skinner & David Skinner on Lean in Law Firms and Legal Departments


June: Change & Brain Science

Dr. Mark Jaben gave a presentation about current research and understanding about change and the human brain. He disagreed with some of the points that Greg and I made in February, so I learned a lot from this webinar titled “The Science Behind Resistance to Change:What the Research Says & How it Can Help You.”

Here is a podcast that I did with him on this topic back in 2014:

Podcast #193 – Mark Jaben, MD on Lean, Change, and Our Brains

Next week, I'll share the webinars from the second half of the year.
