Lean Blog Interviews — 64: Jamie Flinchbaugh, “Coaching”

Here is LeanBlog Podcast #64, again with Jamie Flinchbaugh, Founder of and Partner with the Lean Learning Center and co-author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Lean. In this Podcast, we talk about the role of coaching in a Lean transformation effort. What is the difference between coaching toward a solution and coaching to learn a method, for example? This was also the first attempt at a “video podcast”, this is the audio from that. The video, if desired, can be found at this address: http://www.leanblog.org/2009/03/video-podcast-beta-v-10-jamie.html . The video admittedly doesn’t add too much to the discussion, but it’s an experiment and I’ll continue to put audio from the discussions here in the audio podcast series if I do more videos.
