During this podcast episode with Sam Morgan, Mark Graban learns about his background and journey learning Lean and Toyota Kata.
They discuss how he focuses on “Respect for People” and how he is called to bring attention and raise awareness for inequities he sees in his life with his wife and children. He also tries to showcase people of color in his “CI in 5” video series.
They also discuss why there are not many Black faces in attendance or presenters at Lean conferences and events. They also talk about the role systemic racism plays in this issue, and ultimately selecting underserved people for continuous improvement roles.
