Thanks for having me come present to the Emerald Valley High Performance Consortium! Please do keep in touch about your progress, lessons learned, or challenges from your Kaizen efforts.
Some links to people and books that I mentioned:

Below, you can view or download (as PDF) the slides I used for our session yesterday.
Below is the simulation exercise (as a PPT). You can download, use this, modify, etc. I only ask that, if you find a better way to facilitate or tweak the exercise, please what you’ve learned with me.
