Today’s guest is Sam MacPherson. Sam is one of the Co-Founders of The Lean Leadership Academy based out of Pinehurst, North Carolina. He also partnered with Lean Frontiers and is a Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Summit on Lean Leadership, an annual event that is coming up on it’s second annual meeting in Charlotte, NC. Sam has been a guest on the podcast before and if you want to find out more about his lean journey, his successes, and setbacks you can check out his episode back in episode 20.
I’m pretty protective about the sponsorships that I take on for the podcast. I’ve worked hard to earn your respect and to give you a chance to know, like, and trust me. Therefore, I’ll only make recommendations of events, products, and service that I believe will be of value to you. Last year, I had the opportunity to feature the speakers who were speaking at last year’s summit and quite frankly, I was blown away. This is unlike any other event that you might attend. However, I want you to have an opportunity to decide for yourself so I asked Sam to hop on Skype with me and talk about what to expect in this year’s summit.
Sam and I will talk about :
- Why is leadership so important in lean and continuous improvement.
- How The Summit on Lean Leadership is different from other conferences or events in the Lean Community.
- A preview of some of the presenters at this year’s Summit on Lean Leadership and what makes them unique.
