Lean Blog Interviews — 309: David Meier, Bourbon and Continuous Improvement

Back on the podcast for the sixth time is my friend David Meier, a Lean / TPS consultant who is a former Toyota leader at their plant in Georgetown, Kentucky. As we mentioned in our April episode (#304), he’s gotten into what’s, perhaps, the most Kentucky of industries… distilling bourbon (and more) at Glenn’s Creek Distillery. In this episode, there’s a lot of bourbon talk, with some Lean concepts thrown in. If you share our interest in Lean and whiskey, then this might be your most favorite episode ever. Of course, if` you don’t have any interest in bourbon, you might well skip this one.
