Since starting Lean Six Sigma Academy I have been fortunate enough to form many new friends. Perhaps the most interesting friendship I have made is with one of the “giants” of the Lean blogosphere, Mark Graban. Mark and I live in the same town (Keller, Texas) and even attend the same church. It’s a small Lean world we live in, eh?
Anyhow, Mark and I have been meaning to meet up for coffee to talk about Lean and blogging for some time and we were finally able to make it happen Saturday morning.
We enjoyed some coffee and overpriced pastries and talked about many things related to Lean and Six Sigma. We also snuck in some Big Ten football talk. Mark tells me this may be the year of the mighty Northwestern Wildcats! We shall see Mark, we shall see.
Mark also shared lots of valuable blogging tips with me for which I am very thankful. One day I may actually be in position to reciprocate some tips… but for now I am happy as the pupil!
So if you live under and rock and have never visited the Lean Blog please do. Mark is both an expert Lean blogger and all around nice guy.
