Again, one 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.

Here are the videos (and links to slides) from the second half of the year.

July: Strategy Deployment

As we rolled into summer, I gave a presentation called “Everything You Need to Know About Strategy Deployment” – or at least it was everything I know and could fit into 45 minutes. View the slides.


August: Lean Leadership from the Military and Toyota

In August, I was joined by Sam MacPherson, who gave a great presentation titled “The Art and Science Behind Successful Lean Transformations.” See the slides here.

You can also listen to (and view) a podcast that we did together:

Podcast #235 – Sam MacPherson, The Green Beret Way to the Toyota Way & Lean Leadership


September: Lean Government

The first of our webinars this month was by Harry Kenworthy, talking about principles for “Lean government” that would really apply anywhere: “10 Commandments for Lean in Government (and Beyond).” View the slides.

Here's my podcast with him from 2014:

Podcast #198 – Harry Kenworthy, #Lean in Government


September: Lean, PMOs, and Innovation

Our second webinar of the month was by Erin Edwards of Four Seasons Produce, talking about Lean, program management offices (PMOs), and how to combine improvement and innovation: “Turning Continuous Improvement and a PMO into an Innovation Team.” View the slides.
