Mark Graban and Gregory Jacobson — Congratulations! You Have Lots of Employee Ideas! Now What?
Many Lean or Kaizen initiatives are focused on getting front-line employees to identify problems or opportunities for improvement, along with a potential idea or countermeasure. Some managers, unfortunately, think their employees won’t have many good ideas. This is hardly ever the case! Your employees have a lot of great ideas.

Next Video Matthew May — The Play-To-Win Strategy Formulation Canvas
Strategy means different things to different people. Some define strategy as a vision, some as a plan. Others define it as optimizing the status quo, or perhaps following best practices. Still others deny that strategy is possible, especially in times of great and rapid change. Making and acting on choices produces winners. Why? Because clear, tough choices force your hand, confine you to a path, but free you to focus on what matters most: winning. The activity centers on completing a takeaway deliverable: the Play-to-Win Canvas, a large wall map that guides the team through the thinking required to produce two competing strategic choices.
