    Why I'm "Handing Over" My Blog for the Week to #RootCauseRacism

    Why I'm "Handing Over" My Blog for the Week to #RootCauseRacism

    You might have heard of a "social media takeover" where a brand with a large following gives control of their social media feed to somebody who is promoting a cause or a social message.

    One person I've followed on LinkedIn is Deondra Wardelle. She is a Lean practitioner (like me) and she's a Black woman (unlike me).

    So, thinking back to the idea of a "social media takeover." I was inspired by Deondra, so I asked her to accept a "blog handover" as I'm calling it. My initial thought was to give a platform for her to write and talk about anything she wanted, to give more exposure to her voice.

    The “Practicing Lean” Audiobook is Available Through Audible

    I'm excited to announce that our book Practicing Lean is now available as an audiobook through Audible.

    As we did with the paperback and Kindle versions of the book, 100% of royalties will be donated to the Louise Batz Patient Safety Foundation (it's been almost $5000 so far).

    You can buy or subscribe through Audible.

    Standard Work for Being as Safe as Possible When Refueling Your Vehicle

    Standard Work for Being as Safe as Possible When Refueling Your Vehicle

    It's possible that I could start traveling again for my healthcare consulting work next month... or maybe in July. My colleagues at Value Capture aren't sure yet how this will work out, but clients are sharing their current plans for starting to re-open -- to a new normal, not the old normal.

    As I mentioned (if not buried) in a post last week, my wife and I relocated from Orlando to Los Angeles last week because she is starting a new job (we will still have our permanent home in Texas).

    Anyway, as the consultants start to think about traveling again, I have compiled some thoughts from my own research and experience since I'm the only one who has flown or stayed in hotels over the past two months, due to the relocation.

    Remembering a Great Leader, Paul O'Neill (1935-2020)

    Remembering a Great Leader, Paul O'Neill (1935-2020)

    http://www.leanblog.org/audio304

    It was a sad weekend, hearing about the passing of Paul H O'Neill, Sr. on Saturday. He was 84.

    I had the good fortune to meet and spend time with Mr. O'Neill on a few occasions and I'll share some reflections in this post. My condolences go out to his family and friends, and especially to my Value Capture colleagues who worked with him at Alcoa or at the firm over the past 15 years.

    Here are his obituaries from the WSJ, the New York Times, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. You can also read more about his life on a memorial page that his family set up and people are sharing memories there.
