Time for a Holiday Break, Relaxation, and Reflection – and “Gemba Claus”


It's time to officially go on “blog holiday” until the end of the year.

I hope it's been a great year for you, personally and professionally. It's a time to relax, celebrate, be appreciative, and reflect. “Lean thinkers” like to reflect as part of our normal practice and our improvement work. The end of year is a good time to reflect on the year and to think about the year ahead.

… my parody Christmas song:

Gemba Claus is Comin' to Town.” Here is the original post with lyrics.

And the tongue-in-cheek “Lean Blog Holiday Gift Guide” from last year:

Best wishes for the new year… thanks again for being a part of my blog community.
