Remastered June 2021

This is the first part of a conversation with Jamie Flinchbaugh, founder and partner with the Lean Learning Center and co-author of the book “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Lean.” . Prior to starting the Center, Jamie has had a long career as a lean manufacturing leader, with Chrysler, with DTE Energy, as well as Rev! Motorcycles, another company he helped start. Jamie is also a regular contributor to the Lean Blog and I’m happy to have him here. Today, we will talk about waste, as defined in lean manufacturing, and the specific language of waste elimination. Our second podcast will focus on leadership’s role in waste elimination, so you can subscribe to the podcast or stay tuned to the Lean Blog to learn when that will be available.
