"Great mini-book. Will help teams level-up and succeed."

“Much of this waste reduction comes from Lean’s goal of a “kaizen” culture. Kaizen is a state of continuous improvement where people naturally look for ways to improve poorly performing practices.”

Jim Thanks for the invite. It was unexpected.

He sure is unique. I hate it when I hear people say "You should read Valis" or "You should read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep".

Telling someone to read one PKD book is like telling them to go to a class to find out what University is like.

I tend to tell people "Read these five books and don't expect to like the first three."

He's totally an acquired taste.


Hertzan Chimera hey Jim,
thanks for joining the PKD group and sharing with us your introduction

:)
