Evan started his blog Kaizen Notebook at the same time I started mine. We have had many conversations on Lean thinking and implementation. I really enjoy Evan's practical approach to applying Lean to his every life. I get a number of great ideas from Evan that I don't mind stealing.
Here are a few of my favorite posts on Kaizen Notebook from this past year:
Value Stream Mapping and Lead Time – Evan Durant explains that lead time is a proxy for all those other process metrics in the value stream.
I's on the Prize – Evan Durant explains 3 ‘I’ things that are required to make truly effective visual management.
Action - Evan Durant reminds us that the action necessary often is to go and see because action without understanding counterproductive.
Evan is always challenging my thinking which is why I keep coming back to see what next. I know you will want to keep tuning in as well after reading posts like these.
