Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) July 15, 2013
The nonprofit Lean Enterprise Institute (LEI) has launched The Lean Post, an ambitious community blog platform where leading thinkers and practitioners in the business world’s various continuous improvement communities can connect, share, and learn together.
“Long-time adjacent communities such as lean management, organizational learning, systems thinking, operations research, and the lean startup movement are intersecting, colliding, and converging, which is as it should be,” said John Shook, LEI chairman and CEO. “We decided to create The Lean Post as one means of boosting global communication among all communities thinking deeply about continuous innovation.”
Current posts cover lean healthcare, startup lessons learned, model lines, leadership, capability development, design thinking, and senior leadership involvement, among other topics. The blog has a list of guidelines for prospective contributors.
“Essentially The Lean Post is a blog curated by LEI editors for the global business and organizational change communities,” explained Lex Schroeder, LEI managing editor. “It’s a place where thought leaders, coaches, practitioners, and people at any stage of their improvement journeys can share stories, lessons learned, and be in conversation about making things better through lean.”
Invitation to Participate
Schroeder said articles should present a new idea, discuss an old idea from a new angle, or raise a question related to the value of lean thinking and practice in the world today. “Everyone is invited to participate, either by submitting an article, joining the dialogue, sharing articles with colleagues, or just reading and learning,” she said. “We’re aiming to create a unique mix of voices and perspectives on The Lean Post, and we really want to invite people to submit posts.”
