Great Podcast

I’d highly recommend this podcast. The episode on “Design Thinking for Caregivers” was very interesting. Health care is such an important topic right now, and Tom’s explanation of his growth from introvert to public speaker ace was great to hear about too. I think a wide range of people will enjoy it too.

If you have the time, I’m also a host of a podcast in manufacturing. Please check out, “The Right Direction Podcast” from Compass Precision.

An IE who loves podcasts

Thanks for creating a show that industrial and systems engineers can learn from. The shows have a nice range from past careers to new approaches.

“JIT” Podcasting

A much needed podcast for the IE function. Although still early, I hope more content comes out about lean and six sigma manufacturing, supply chain optimization, and leadership within organizations.

W.L. Gore and Associates is looking and hiring talented IEs. Check us out at Gore.com/Careers!
