I recently had the honor of appearing on the Gemba Academy podcast hosted by Ron Pereira. In the 40 minute interview, Ron, himself a father of 6, and I discuss the challenges of raising a big family and how Lean thinking and continuous improvement can be applied in home and in family life to conquer the chaos.
After taking a deep dive into my household, we also discuss some more traditional Lean-related topics such as:
- My favorite Lean quote (did you know Walt Disney was a Lean thinker?)
- What Repsect for People means to me
- The best advice I have ever received
- Some of my personal productivity habits
- The social aspects of Lean organizations
- My favorite books
