Last week, I ran an experiment. I set up a two-hour block on Friday afternoon that I labeled as “Office Hours,” where followers on Twitter or LinkedIn (as I posted there) could schedule a 10- to 30-minute phone call to talk about topics like Lean, continuous improvement, healthcare improvement and such.
The goal is for both sides of the conversation to walk away with something we didn't know at the start of the call.
I only gave a few hours' notice, so I only had one person sign up. At least, I think it was a combination of short notice and it being a Friday afternoon.
But, I enjoyed the discussion that I had, so I'm willing to experiment again.
I've set up blocks of time on Thursday, August 10 and Friday August 11 — and future dates, see below…
Update: The office hours time slots are currently full, but I will try version 3 of this experiment in the future. I'm not sure what the best mechanism would be for notifying people about new office hours would be… suggestions?

Let's see how this version 2 of the experiment works out…
