Management Improvement Carnival #98

Once again, Lean Reflections gets to host the Management Improvement Carnival for Curious Cat. My picks include a look inside Toyota, lofty thinking about design of organizations, and on-the-ground mistaken beliefs encountered in a service setting:

LeanBlog Podcast #90 features Tim Turner, a plant team member at Toyota Kentucky, who compiled stories from 80 fellow team members from every level of TMMK organization about what it feels like to be part of Toyota.

Design Thinking -- Can Organizations be Beautiful? IDEO's Tim Brown ponders the aesthetics of an organization. What would a beautiful, innovative organization look like or feel like?

Daily Kaizen -- Understanding Demand Lee Fried works at Group Health Cooperative in Seattle, recently grappling with the belief that it is impossible to predict when the end customer is going need a service.

New: When you see a good blog post or article, vote it on John Hunter's Management reddit list. Let's all share daily.
