Gemba Academy has been producing practical and relevant training material for years. I was really glad to find they are now doing a podcast which has a variety of guests speaking to many different important topics related to lean
Great show, great company
I have gained so many great concepts over the years. One of my favorite podcasts!
Listened to the episode with Juan Gomez. He was such an informative guest. Loved hearing what he had to say about industrial revolutions and where industry is going. He’s so right that companies need to keep up with the latest technology, or they’re going to be left behind.
I’d highly recommend this podcast for anyone.
