Examples of Excellence from Evolving Excellence
Periodically I will highlight various Lean resources to share ways I continue to learn in hope it may help others along their journey. Today we are going to look at the Evolving Excellence blog. There are several contributing authors who have been blogging since November 2004. They discuss a wide range of topics within the lean genre. I particular find the categories on examples of excellence and factory tours beneficial. These categories are especially helpful in sharing best practices and stealing shamelessly from others. Many of the examples include photograps which help stimulate improvement ideas. The factory tours are videos from various sources about a wide range of manufacturing processes. Not all the vidoes are examples in lean principles but it is a good way to learn about other industries and learn to "see" the eight wastes.
