Lean Blitz received two shout-outs by Ben Hill of MiLB.com in his coverage of the Baseball Winter Meetings, one more “fun” than the other.
What Is It?: Consultant Chad Walters, who shows teams how to “be more efficient using lean techniques.” This is based on a management philosophy first developed and popularized by Toyota.
He also has a blog where he covers the fun, creative, and promotional side of Minor League Baseball, called Ben’s Biz Blog. During the Baseball Winter Meetings we took an evening to explore a recommended dining option in Dallas in an adventure he dubbed “Dipquest 2011.” His article and accompanying photographs can be found here.
