Jamie Flinchbaugh and I had a great time with the first two episodes of “Lean Whiskey.” Thanks to everyone who has subscribed, rated, and reviewed our podcast.
Part of the original concept was to also sometimes have guest hosts (like the TV show “Pardon the Interruption” does). The first guest host joining me is my friend Chris Burnham. Chris is also an experienced Lean practitioner and leader, and we've talked about Lean over whiskey in person (at last year's KaiNexus User Conference). Oh, and we collaborated on the webinar he recently did for KaiNexus.
We follow the “standardized work” for Lean Whiskey… we chat about what we're sipping (Kentucky rye whiskeys), discuss two articles from the news, and we answer a listener question. Since standardized work is always open to “kaizen” improvements, we added a short segment called “Lean Pet Peeves.”
Jamie will be back for Episode #4. Thanks for listening and scroll down to listen, get show notes and links, and more.
Here is the third episode if you want to stream it:

Cheers! If you have any feedback or ideas for the podcast, let us know!
Episode #3 Show Notes
Chris Burnham and Mark Graban start Episode 3 by telling listeners how they met and a little bit about the experience Chris has with Lean in multiple settings.
We chat about the very different Kentucky Rye Whiskeys they are drinking and they move on to topics in the news, covering surgeon behavior and patient outcomes, along with robots and workers in a Lean context.
We also answered a listener question about “communities of practice.”
Here are links to what we discussed:
- Chris's Lean Leadership Podcast
- Listener question:
- “Discuss the value of having a network or community of practice in and outside your current organization.”
