Masters Week is finally here! All of the golf world has descended upon Augusta, Georgia for April 8-14 for the 2013 Masters golf tournament at Augusta National Golf Club.
The Lean Blog Podcast with Mark Graban has featured many dignitaries in the field of Lean and continuous improvement – authors, thought leaders, practitioners, consultants, and the like. I’m very excited to now be a participant in such a distinguished series!
Mark interviewed me for the Lean Blog Podcast about the use of Lean in sports as a preview to the 2013 Masters Tournament and the Major League Baseball season. We covered not only the business processes of sports organizations but also some of my other blog post topics like MLB’s pace of game procedures and the BCS Championship parking fiasco in Miami.
Much like the amateurs and younger professionals walking the same fairways as golf’s greats on its biggest stage, I am very humbled to have been provided an opportunity to talk further about the use of Lean and continuous improvement in sports organizations on a platform shared with Norman Bodek, Eric Ries, Dr. Jeffrey Liker, David Meier, Jim Womack, and others sporting the figurative Lean Green Jacket.
