In the Business901 podcast, Would you recommend a Dummies Book? I am!, I had the pleasure Natalie Sayer, the owner of I-Emerge, an Arizona-based global consultancy, and co-author of Lean For Dummies. I found her book not only a great introduction for Lean but practically a ready made training program for your organization. It was well organized and sprinkled with examples. I found it to be a valuable resource for someone that even thinks they know something about Lean.
Below is a transcription of our podcast, where I challenged Natalie on several areas of Lean. We even discussed how Toyota is decentralizing some of their decision making which happened to appear in a major publication earlier this week.
