E6S-079 The Engineering Commons Guest Spot - Episode 84 Work Flow Balance

Intro:  Hi everyone, this is Aaron.  Welcome to the E6S-Methods podcast.  This is episode number 79, and it's another very different episode.  I took a guest spot on another podcast, called The Engineering Commons, and they interviewed me.   We're going to play only a few bits from that episode, so if you want to hear more you should check out The Engineering Commons podcast. Either directly on their website or search and subscribe on iTunes.  It's a great show for engineers. 


Here we go with The Engineering Commons. By the way, I make an error in this episode.  Let me know if you pick up on it.   http://bit.ly/E6S-079; http://bit.ly/E6S-iTunes 

Just a couple of announcements:

  1. I'm coming to India.  I'll be in Chennai and Hyderabad some time between July 4th and July 11th 2015.  If you're in these areas and you'd like to connect, email me.  aaron@e6s-methods.com
  2. The following week I'll be taking a bit of a holiday in Marseilles, France (July 11-18th -ish).  But again, anyone who listens to this and lives in that area and would like to meet up, please feel free to contact me.
  3. Atlanta, Georgia.  I'll be coming to visit you for the Institute for Industrial Engineers : 2015 Engineering and Lean Six Sigma Conference, where I'll be giving a talk on performing hands-on Lean Six Sigma training in a transactional environment. More details at the link.  http://www.iienet2.org/LeanSixSigma/default.aspx.  This will take place between September 30th and October 2nd.  If you're going to be in that area during that time, or to that event and would like to connect, just email me at aaron@e6s-methods.com.
  4. Finally- I'm in the process of finishing off a book. Actually two books. They are both titled Is Lean Six Sigma Right for Me? Both books give an in-depth view of what it is like be part of a Lean Six Sigma transformation.  One book is from the Black Belt practitioners perspective, and the other is from the senior  business leaders perspective.  These books give honest insights into the typical Lean Six Sigma journey.  It cuts through the jargon, buzzwords and hype about these programs and gives the reader relevant information to allow both the practitioner and senior leader to really reflect whether or not it is the right choice for them.  It's not a choice to be taken lightly.  To reserve a copy, check out the link on the home page for book releases.  http://e6s-methods.com/book-releases/
