He continues to work with a love of kaizen as a way of life and has led more than 500 kaizen events over the course of his practice of Lean. He has been trained that respect for people is the most critical pillar of Lean and he shows it with all people that he works with.

    Note from Mark Graban: I noticed Bob’s posts on LinkedIn under the banner of “Lean observations from an old guy.” The stories and tone completely reminded me of what we’re doing in this eBook, so I asked him if I could edit the posts and share them here. Thanks, Bob!
