Listen to (Some of) “Practicing Lean” as a Podcast


Update June 2020: This podcast serves as an audio preview of the full audiobook that is now through Audible. The Podcast has limited chapters as a sample.

Our anthology book Practicing Lean has raised more than $4,000 for the Louise H. Batz Patient Safety Foundation. Please check out their website and I hope you'll consider making a donation here on “Giving Tuesday.”

The book has been available as an eBook, a paperback, and an audiobook. Now that it has been available for a while and sales have slowed, I thought it might help promote the book (and the good cause it supports) to make the audiobook chapters available, over time, as a podcast.

The podcast will mention the book and the Foundation. It's free, of course so we will ask people to make donations if they are so inclined.

It's currently available through Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, TuneIn, and Google Play Music, and more.

Thanks again to the volunteer efforts of a professional voice-over artist, Sam Leigh. Her dad, Mike Leigh, wrote chapter 15. Sam reads all of the chapters except for mine, which I read myself, and the chapter contributed by Paul Akers.
