Notes from Jeff
Dear %$firstname$%,

This month has flown by. It seems like at the end of the year, the pace always picks up. There are many year-end tasks to complete, and the goals we set at the beginning of the year are looming large.

In these times, businesses require a steady had on the rudder to stay the course and finish the year out strong. So, I’ve put together an article this month to help you do just that. It is titled “The 18 Principles of Lean Leadership”. It’s a bit longer than our normal newsletter articles, but it is packed with the leadership insight I started picking up over two decades ago at West Point.

On an unrelated point, you might recall I mentioned in the last newsletter that Tim McMahon (of A Lean Journey) and I would be putting on a live webcast. Well, we’ve got it on the calendar now. Get the details in the “What’s New?” section.

As always, best wishes on your Lean journey.

Best regards,

The 18 Principles of Lean Leadership

Leadership is a critical component of Lean. Whether you are at the top of a company leading the Lean charge, or an engineer working to guide a group of operators on their Lean journey, you need a variety of leadership skills.
