Lean Lessons from Mark Deluzio, Art Byrne, and Jim Womack: transcript of the WLEI podcast
Lean required a level of discipline, engaged leadership, and a structured approach to execution for long-term success. Hear from Lean veterans Mark Deluzio, Art Byrne, and Jim Womack about enduring lessons of Lean execution.
Bad People or A Bad Process?
Standing in a nightmare of a line at the airport prompted Jim Womack to reflect on this problem, and conclude that this was indeed a case of a very bad process rather than any random bad person.
Ask Art: What is the Walk of Shame, and Why Is It Effective?
Take your team on a walk of shame, urges lean veteran Art Byrne. He suggests that you have some fun with it, but ask serious questions about what you are seeing at every stop. If you do it correctly, this exercise can change people's opinions and jump-start you down the lean path.
Show Respect by Exploring Problems With Your Workers
