Just the Lean Talk — Mark Graban & Jamie Flinchbaugh on “Skip the Lean 101 Training”
Here is the episode if you want to stream the audio:
Jamie Flinchbaugh and I started a podcast series just over three years ago called “Lean Whiskey.” It's a very conversational format and we've enjoyed doing it (and if anybody likes listening, then even better!).
We normally chat for 15-20 minutes about whiskey and whatnot before going into about an hour's worth of chat about Lean and related concepts. This past week, we were able to actually meet up in person for the first time since before the pandemic — and it was the first time we recorded an episode in person. I was really happy that we could do that.
But on the topics and themes of the podcast, we realize that some of you might not care about whiskey or might even be uncomfortable with such discussion.
So, as an experiment, I'm publishing the “just the Lean talk” version of the episode in my “Lean Blog Interviews” podcast series as a “bonus” episode. Here, we talk about “Lean 101 training” — is this necessary? Should you learn by doing? If you do training, how should be structured? We talk about lessons learned, tips, our preferences, and more.
