The same lean and agile principles that have changed the way software is developed are now helping companies with the people side of change.

To find out what this means in reality, Dawna Jones talks to Lean Sensei Daniel Stoelb about what he's learned from working with change in organizations for over thirty-five years and how the principles used in business can apply and support local change initiatives and how we utilize our resources.

In this interview they discuss:

  • What people resist when changes are initiated
  • How we've lost focus in implementing change
  • How to reclaim it
  • Why leaders gain control by giving it up
  • Why having the tool kit isn't enough
Daniel Stoelb is a Lean Enterprise, Six Sigma and Organizational Excellence Sensei who cares about the larger changes happening in the world. He's certified over 1000 Lean Masters and Lean Specialists world-wide and achieved over $100 million in cost savings through putting greater efficiency in play for his clients. He is a proponent of doing things differently and taking what we've learned through business to gain resilience in society and in business.

The Evolutionary Provocateur bi-monthly show is for executives, managers, and supervisors (OR for leaders at all levels) who have noticed that it is not what you know but who you are that has the biggest impact.

Dawna Jones, the show's host, believes that by raising awareness and understanding we can make a quantum leap to a new level of innovation in business - but it has to be done collectively.

What better way to do it than by provoking the evolution of how you see yourself and your role!
