Just wanted to tell you I’m still alive and kicking. I have been up to all sorts of things and my personal development has taken a huge leap since I started my new job.
The main driver for writing posts to this blog have been to exploit ideas and creativity, allowing me to do some research, learn about new topics and test out ideas. One of the reasons I stopped writing is that my new job stimulates all that and more. I’m free to pursue my ideas and exploit my creativity and this has really inspired me. Other reasons are that I have been very busy adjusting to new tasks and a new organisation, and being uncertain about what is approved regarding blogging in a large corporation.
Some of my latest achievments are:
- Project Manager of a project pursuing an idea about making the introductory education for new employees LEAN. Instead of having new employees reading a lot of documentation upfront and Just-in-Case, making them read it Just-in-Time using a pull flow. Reading all that documentation is batching knowledge, and until you use that knowledge to create some customer value, it is waste
- I have designed and held a basic LEAN course for non-production processes, including a simulation of a real business process. Now I’m designing the advanced course that I will take on tour in China and Russia later this year.
- I’m also designing an Innovation Academy, where we aim to equip a team of Innovators with innovation and facilitation skills in a series of courses.
I’m starting my vacation next week so don’t expect too many posts until august. I will try to write more, but the focus will shift towards LEAN.
