In this episode, we take a deep look at “The Mistakes that Make Us” with the award-winning author of a new book by that title, Mark Graban.

If your company struggles with cultivating a culture of learning and innovation that keeps you and your peers engaged, then you will deeply appreciate what Mark has discovered through his research and practical discovery as a Lean expert and consultant.

Mark has over half a million followers on LinkedIn who rely on him to help them synthesize and practice methods including Lean management, continuous improvement, statistical methods, and people-centered leadership approaches.

Mark has published multiple breakthrough books, earned a B.S. in Industrial Engineering from Northwestern University, and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering and M.B.A. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Leaders for Global Operations Program.
