EPISODE #9: “Family and Friends Can Be Much Better Than Medicine”: A Discussion with Matt Garcia of Western Home Communities
The title of this episode came from a story that Matt shared about how he “got started” in the world of Lean and how the concept of respecting people was at the heart of it. ILC Board Member and Western Home Communities’ Chief Business Development & Process Improvement Officer, Matt talks about his own personal lean journey, lessons learned along the way and also gives hiring advise for those looking to hire with Lean in mind.
Jeff’s passion for the ILC and it’s future shine through as he gives us additional insight into the vision of the Iowa Lean Consortium and the progress that has been made since its creation in 2009. He issues a challenge to the ILC members by responding to the question, “what do we need from the members of the ILC?”.
For this episode, I asked Jamie to share with us lessons he has learned on his lean journey (see Hitchhikers Guide to Lean) and to give us an overview of how to Build a Lean Leadership Operating System. As you listen, make sure that you have pen and paper at the ready as there is a lot of practical and sensible advise shared in these 30 minutes.
