Welcome to Management Meditations

The number one requirement for success is learning... life long, continuous, and on-demand. It is a requirement of organization and individual health. This is the key to competitiveness and it is the number one desired benefit of employees after health care. After forty-five years of helping organizations build creative and lean cultures at companies like Honda, Toyota, Honeywell, Shell Oil and dozens more, in recent years I have focused on making all my training and tools available globally, at low cost and on-demand.

I do two things to help my clients:

  • First, I consult to redesign the organization and its systems to eliminate waste in the process flow and to form self-directed teams that engage in continuous improvement of the work process. These are the key elements of the technical and social systems of a lean or agile organizaton.
  • Second, I help to develop the skills of team leaders and team members. In recent years I have developed online courses to deliver management skills, team leadership and lean training in the most efficient way. Online learning does not change behavior alone. But, when online training¬†is paired with coaching and action-learning, the culture will change in a sustainable way. My courses are designed to be part of a system of learning and development.

I hope you will take a look at The Process of Change that describes a proven set of change methodologies as well as my fifteen courses on leadership and management skills.

My blog posts are meditations on the state of leadership and management in light of both current events and history. Please have a look around and feel free to contact me at
