Invoking Change To Make Organisations Better - with Ron Pereira

Business Problems Solved Podcast

This week, Lee talks to Ron Pereira, the man behind the Gemba Academy, who help people to grow per­son­al­ly and pro­fes­sion­al­ly by building an orga­ni­sa­tion­al cul­ture of con­tin­u­ous improve­ment. KEY TAKEAWAYS Solutions are driven by the desire to implement and invoke real change. Gemba was born out of a need to make solutions better. We do not make organisations better by simply training our people. We make it better by going out into the organisation and invoking change. We can make a huge difference to other people, and help them to realise their potential, by simply employing kindness in the way we interact. Anybody can make an impact upon anyone else at any time. Therefore, we must consider carefully, each interaction we have. BEST MOMENTS 'I want to help them invoke change' 'You're going to be able to go now and real value' 'We're accelerating the change process' 'You can make a huge difference by the way you behave' VALUABLE RESOURCES Business Problems Solved Podcast Gemba Academy - https://blog.gembaacademy.com/author/rpereira/ Ron Pereira LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/leansixsigmaacademy/ ABOUT THE HOST For the last 15 years, I have been a multi-sector internal or external business improvement consultant, building the improved capability of individuals, teams and businesses.

Ron Pereira from Gemba Academy, Lean and Six Sigma

Lean Blog Interviews

My guest for Podcast #181 is a good friend, Ron Pereira of Gemba Academy, an outstanding provider of online Lean (and now Six Sigma) education. You might also know Ron from his blog posts (and now, also, a podcast) at LSSacademy.com. I was recently a guest on episode #8 of his podcast series. Ron was also the guest host for episode #143 of my podcast, where he interviewed me with follow up questions from a webinar I did for Gemba Academy on SPC. Before I moved to San Antonio, Ron and used to live just about five miles apart in Keller, Texas and would meet for coffee regularly... but, today, we are talking via Skype. We're talking about his background with both Six Sigma and Lean and about how these methods can be used together. Ron tells a story about a time he used statistical methods to solve something that might have been difficult with standard Lean approaches. For a link to this episode, refer people to www.leanblog.org/181 Conflict of interest disclosure: Gemba Academy is a formal partner of KaiNexus, a technology company I work with and have an ownership stake in. I have received a free subscription to the Gemba Academy training classes.  Please leave a comment and join the discussion about the podcast episode.

Mark Graban & Ron Pereira, SPC Webinar Q&A

Lean Blog Interviews

Like podcast #143, this episode is a Q&A that follows up a webinar I did for my good friends at Gemba Academy recently, on the topic "Using Statistical Process Control (SPC) to Make Better Management Decisions." You can view a recording of the webinar here (http://www.leanblog.org/SPCwebinar) or on the Gemba Academy website. This might seem like an esoteric topic, but it's one I've found to be VERY practical and helpful in my career and with my clients. Some feedback I got included, "That wasn't nearly as boring as one might have expected." :-) To point others to this, use the simple URL: www.leanblog.org/143 You can find links to posts related to this podcast there, as well.
