Just a quick post that you might want to check out the latest episode of The Lean Nation, an actual lean-oriented radio show on WPRV in Providence, Rhode Island. This archived episode features none other
than our fellow blogger and partner in Gemba Academy, Ron Pereira. As if that wasn't enough, Paul Akers calls into the show for a chat.
Paul is a well-known lean manufacturing entrepreneur and is running for a U.S. Senate seat representing Washington state. Unlike most of our politicians, he started and runs a real business, signs real paychecks, manages a real budget, and leads real people. In other words he lives in the real world. You might want to learn more about Paul and how he plans to apply his lean knowledge and experience to government.
