    Ending Human Suffering via Lean with Kyle Kumpf

    Ending Human Suffering via Lean with Kyle Kumpf

    This week welcome Kyle Kumpf to the show!

    In Kyle’s own words; here’s who he is:

    “I get out of bed in the morning to end human suffering as it relates to process.

    Problems are a direct result of process; however:

    • People are often the first to get blamed

    • Little to no support is provided to uncover why problems occur

    • Processes are often made more complex in response to problems

    We spend most of our lives at work. Our talents and ideas shouldn’t be inhibited by draconian management behavior and poor processes.

    When we have simple, visible systems in place, we can accomplish great things at work while having more time with our families, hobbies and interests.” Amen Kyle!

    As always - I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you get something from it! Make it a great week!

New Favorite!

This is my new favorite Lean podcast! I love the host's demeaner; it really feels like he loves what he's doing, and he knows his stuff. It's all about the people! Thoughtful and insightful. Much love!

AllanOpEx ,

Brilliant!

Paul does a great job making it easy to listen to these conversations! Lots of great information gets shared and you don’t even realize that you’re learning because it doesn’t feel like listening to an interview. Can’t wait for more!

DerekBurns96 ,

Great way to start the week!

I like that the podcast comes out early on a Monday so I can listen on my way to work. Great content too-I laugh as much as I learn! Just starting with Lean, so I’m trying to learn as much as I can.
