The Lean Solutions Podcast: Wins And Challenges In Lean MFG With Toby Curry

In this episode, Toby Curry and I discuss lean process implementation in an organization as well as factors that can contribute to failure in a lean practice system.

What You'll Learn:

1. Can you give us some background on who you are and some of your work experience?

3. Can you give us an example of a lean process implementation that your organization has benefited from?

4. What do you feel is the largest factor that contributes to failed lean initiatives in manufacturing facility?

5. If you could go back now and impart some wisdom to yourself before you started practicing lean initiatives, what would it be?
