About me

I’ve worked in projects and process improvement my whole career.  From healthcare to insurance, consulting, leading teams, training agile and six sigma . . . it isn’t what you’d call exciting work.  You know, not the sort of thing you wanted to do when you were a kid.

This blog isn’t really about my work though, its about everything else.

The principles behind what is often called lean thinking are principles of simplicity.  It is a sort of extreme common sense.  The thing about principles is that, unlike most rules, they can be applied to a variety of circumstances.  When you take a way of thinking out of context, you begin to see what else you can do with it.

This blog, then, is about lean thinking in real life – not for consultants struggling through their first 5S (although you guys are welcome too!) – what I’ve found are principles that make all kinds of problem easier to solve.

I don’t have all the answers; but all my life people have told me I look at things differently, and a different perspective is sometimes all you need 🙂

Have a good one!
