Bowden Blog – Our Lean Journey (From Early Kaizen Events through Current 2-Second Lean Efforts!)

Recently, I was asked to provide a summary of our Lean Journey, since we’ve taken some significant strides in the recent year.

Our strides forward have been largely due to our adopting of our 2-Second Lean approach (based on the book 2-Second Lean by Paul Akers) almost a year ago.

The video below provides an overview of our path and hopefully some encouragement for others seeking to improve their organizations.


Bowden Blog: 2-Second Lean Struggle – “What Should I Improve Today?!?”

For this edition of the Bowden Blog, we’re dealing with the struggle of what to do with our Daily Improvement Time.

It’s mid-January and my daughter, Abby, is helping film and edit the videos.  It’s her first one and this one ended up a bit long…she’ll clearly have to work to get the “talent” (me!) to ramble a bit less…

Hopefully some of these ideas will help you keep your Team focused and engaged, as there is always plenty of opportunity to improve!

Thanks, Andy

It was a warm Saturday afternoon when the Team at Bowden gathered with their families to celebrate the career of Sandi Pandy.

For over 33 years, Sandi’s enthusiasm has been a hallmark of Bowden’s world as Sandi worked tirelessly doing so many different tasks:  Payroll, HR, purchasing, accounting, party planning, answering the phone, inventory, budgeting…..the list could go on and on.

Sandi has been such an important part of all that we do and we wish her well as she plans to spend much more time with her family in the months and years ahead.  Thanks very much, Sandi, for all that you’ve added into our lives!
