Greg_GlebeIn this episode we crank up the intensity a bit as we visit with Greg Glebe, the President & Founder of Xylem Design.

During our conversation Greg and I explore how he and his company  got started with their lean journey.  We also talk about some of their challenges and how he and his team are trying to overcome them.

As you’ll hear Greg is extremely passionate and doesn’t hold back in sharing his thoughts.

And, as I mention during the opening of the show, you may not agree with everything Greg says, or how he says it, but I think it’s valuable to hear various perspectives on how others approach continuous improvement.
