The New England Lean Podcast — S2 10: Ending Human Suffering via Lean with Kyle Kumpf

This week welcome Kyle Kumpf to the show!

In Kyle’s own words; here’s who he is:

“I get out of bed in the morning to end human suffering as it relates to process.

Problems are a direct result of process; however:

• People are often the first to get blamed

• Little to no support is provided to uncover why problems occur

• Processes are often made more complex in response to problems

We spend most of our lives at work. Our talents and ideas shouldn’t be inhibited by draconian management behavior and poor processes.

When we have simple, visible systems in place, we can accomplish great things at work while having more time with our families, hobbies and interests.” Amen Kyle!

As always – I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you get something from it! Make it a great week!
