Lean Blog Interviews — 272: Steve Thompson, Lean Supply Chain Lessons from Automotive

My guest for Episode #272 is Steve Thompson, Director of Patient Driven Supply Network initiatives for Cardinal Health, a global, integrated healthcare services and products company. He is also a Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt, dating back to his time spent working in the automotive industry. In today’s episode, we talk about his lessons learned from General Motors and Lear Corporation and how he’s helping healthcare leaders apply these lessons to improve their supply chain operations. In the past year, I’ve had a marketing partnership with Cardinal Health, which has led to content like this webinar and article, but after meeting Scott last year and having a great chat, I’m doing this podcast outside of that formal partnership. I’m pleased to have him on the podcast.
