Just a couple of brief announcements …
As if my daily rantings and ramblings in Evolving Excellence weren’t enough, the Lean Executive blog is being launched this morning with even more of my blathering. I hope you get a chance to look in on it from time to time.
I have been asked to give the keynote address at the China Automotive Manufacturing Conference in Shanghai next month. The State Department has issued a mild warning for Gringos traveling to Shanghai, although I suspect that if I am in any physical danger it is more likely to be from the Americans from Delphi who will be presenting at the conference. I am looking forward to getting a detailed look at the Chinese auto manufacturers who will be discussing where they are in their lean efforts and describing their manufacturing systems and challenges in some detail.
While I am in Asia, I will be giving my Lean Management course to a few groups, so anyone who wants to get in on it while I am there should send me an email, or you can get in touch with Mccain Koo at the Lean Manufacturing Academy in China who is arranging all of the details.
Finally, I am in the planning stages of a trip to Europe in August to put the Lean Management course on there. Same thing – if anyone wants in on it, get in touch with me.
