Episode #7 of the “Lean Whiskey” Podcast: Sharing Samples and Bringing Lean Home

0
Mark and Jamie

It's two episodes in a row with Jamie Flinchbaugh, as we're both back for Episode #7 of the Lean Whiskey podcast.

This Sunday, I'll be recording Episode #8 with another guest host, my friend Cristal Totterman who does Lean work at a health system in Florida. We'll be attempting to recreate and record what she calls “chummy Lean chat” as we've done in person many times (and sometimes over a drink). So, stay tuned for that. We might even break the format and have something other than whiskey.

But today, Jamie and I share whiskey samples from each other's collections and talk about some recent work projects. They explore whether you should bring Lean home, and apply it “with” (not “to”???) your spouse or family. Is Lean about efficiency when it comes to your home or your marriage? What is the purpose? We also question whether the author was really doing any Lean, or just having fun with spreadsheets. 

We then explore Josh Howell's (newly minted President of the Lean Enterprise Institute) open question to the community about the current state of the lean management movement. To some degree, Mark and I reject the premise of the question, and we explain why, and we also do our best to answer it. We finish this episode sharing our recent favorite non-Lean, non-fiction books.
