Lean Blog Interviews — 157: Nick Sarillo, “A Slice of the Pie”

Joining me for episode #157 is Nick Sarillo, founder of Nick’s Pizza & Pub and author of the new book (out September 13) called A Slice of the Pie: How to Build a Big Little Business. I had a chance to meet Nick and visit one of his restaurants in 2010 after I blogged about an Inc. magazine article about their culture and their approach to operations. It was great talking to Nick about his new book and what I call the “Like Lean” mindsets and approaches that remind me of the challenges and opportunities that organizations face with Lean Manufacturing or Lean Healthcare. I hope you’ll take a listen. To point others to this, use the simple URL: www.leanblog.org/157. You can find links to posts related to this podcast there, as well.
