About this Podcast...

Lean, which started out life in automobile manufacturing, has been popping up just about everywhere in the last few years such at banks, in government offices and healthcare organizations, among many others. But what about using Lean principles in daily life to become personally more productive? That’s the concept behind an initiative being run by researcher Niklas Modig at the Stockholm School of Economics in Sweden called LeanOnMyself.net.

In this Process Perspectives interview, Niklas Modig is joined by two of his students - Rasmus Fahland and Karolina Heden Lind - and Anders Lundin, assistant coach of the Swedish women's national handball team, to explain what's behind the initiative. In this interview, hear how Lean can help with personal productivity, and how it can even help in non-traditional areas like athletic performance as Assistant Coach Anders Lundin explains how Lean culture helped the Swedish women's handball team move from low down in the rankings to nearly number one in Europe.
