Hopefully making for some more useful conversation, I’m starting to find some more lean people on Twitter. I’m starting to connect with people around the world that I otherwise would never meet. Here they are in no particular order:
- Mark Graban: http://twitter.com/leanblog. His focus is on healthcare and you can also read his blog here: http://www.leanblog.org
- Ron Pereira: http://twitter.com/lssacademy. He’s on the manufacturing side of things and also covers six sigma. Keep up with him here: http://lssacademy.com.
- Michael Lombard: http://twitter.com/mglombard. His interests are in both lean manufacturing and green building. He’s also active on http://www.thegreeniuses.com.
- Gilad Langer: http://twitter.com/giladl. He’s into manufacturing. His blog is here: http://manufacturingintelligence.blogspot.com/.
- Gerry Kirk: http://twitter.com/gerrykirk. He keeps the discussion going on lean’s use within software development.
- Paul Levy: http://twitter.com/Paulflevy. Another lean person in the healthcare world. He keeps a blog going here: http://www.runningahospital.blogspot.com/.
Are there more? I’m sure they’re out there. We could get some groups going…would really like to do this on FriendFeed though (see below).
I can be found here: http://twitter.com/scottsorheim. I try to stay on the manufacturing side of things, but am generally interested in all things lean. I, of course, develop software (primarily for manufacturing, but even that scope has crept a bit) and am interested in what’s happening in that arena as well.
What I’d really like to get going, though, is some more active participation on http://friendfeed.com. I think it’s a much better place to share information and have conversations. Maybe there’s already some lean stuff happening there, and I’m just not aware of it? Please let me know if that’s the case. I’m here: http://friendfeed.com/scottsorheim.
