Nice review by Joe, who has covered Canadian manufacturing for many years, and published one of my very first articles about Lean.

Honored to get this review from Jon who was so supportive and helpful with the book.
Bringing a fictional character to life
In this podcast, I interview Phil Jenkinson, a fictional character who appears in Michael Ballé's novels, including "Lead with Respect". Michael and I wrote the script, and Jim Tedder, narrator of the audio version of The Lean CEO, read his part. Hear how Jim brings the character to life.
Review by Dave Hogg, Accelerating the Journey
Dave is the standard-bearer for the lean movement in Canada, and brings usable advice to readers in this newsletter, which he likes to see taped to walls in factories. Dave picked up here on the lean government angle - something that definitely needs work in Canada.
Review by Chet Marchwinski, Lean Enterprise Institute
Pleased to get this very generous review from Chet, who has probably documented more lean stories than anybody.
Mention in story about holacracy
The Lean CEO is cited by Globe and Mail columnist Harvey Schachter in the context of non-hierarchical management. Happy to see the book perceived in that light.
Podcast Interview on Lean Leadership
Chris Burnham has a knack for questions that make you think, and it was great fun being on his show.
Interview on Quality Digest Live
Great conversation with Mike Richman and Dirk Dusharme about The Lean CEO. They were very interested in humble leadership, how lean plays out in different sectors, and the essence of what lean stands for.
Podcast interview with Mark Graban
Mark is certainly one of the leading impressarios of lean commentary. What a treat to be on this show right on the publication date of The Lean CEO.
Interview on The American Innovator
On the air with Paul Akers, one of the best examples of somebody who makes lean fun, and also makes lean accessible for a wider audience.
Interview with Karl Wadensten
Karl is an icon in the lean world, and a great interviewer as well. You can tell he's genuinely curious, and not afraid of asking questions.
Review in Exceptional People
Interesting review by leadership guru and journalist Monica Davis, who has discovered lean through The Lean CEO. A very fresh perspective on what lean is all about.
Review in Quality Digest
This review by veteran journalist Mike Richman captures the essence of The Lean CEO, and how lean is different from traditional management.
Review in LeadingBlog
Great review by leadership blogger Michael McKinney, who understands that lean leadership is all about people.
Citation in Article on Engagement
The Lean CEO is cited, and I am quoted, in editor Andrew McIlvaine’s article on employee engagement. Looking through the Lean lens, engagement occurs when “the employees who are closest to the customer are really seen as the most important people in the organization.”
