To celebrate the 50th LeanBlog Podcast, the tables are turned. Guest host Jamie Flinchbaugh chats with me, Mark Graban, about the history of my blog, my podcasts, and how this led into my new book, Lean Hospitals. This was Jamie’s idea (thanks). I normally try not to be the center of attention on the podcasts, letting my guests do most of the talking (so I can learn), so I’m a bit uncomfortable talking about myself… but here it is. Topics include why I started the blog, what I’ve learned along the way, how I got started with Lean, and how I transitioned into healthcare. You won’t learn as much in this as a typical podcast with Jamie, Jeff Liker, or Norm Bodek. But, if you’re interested… here you go! We get to the meat of the healthcare discussion and about the book about 20 minutes in. If you have feedback on the podcast, or any questions for me or my guests, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call and leave a voicemail by calling the “Lean Line” at (817) 776-LEAN (817-776-5326) or contact me via Skype id “mgraban”. Please give your location and your first name. Any comments (email or voicemail) might be used in follow ups to the podcast.
