Audie Penn is the Managing Partner with Faro Partners. He is a board advisor, executive consultant, and certified lean practitioner at the bronze, silver, and gold level. 

He represents the Society of Manufacturing Engineers as a member of the Lean Alliance where he participates in the certification oversight and appeals committee.

In this episode, Audrey, Lee and Audie discuss:

  • Definition of Lean Principles
  • How leaders should prepare their teams for changes to come
  • At what point coaching crosses over into handholding management, slowing the lean process

"Leaders tend to spend too much time telling people how to do their jobs rather than clearly defining how successful outcomes will be measured."
