Lean Topics in Linkedin Discussions
LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network with over 120 million members and growing rapidly. LinkedIn helps exchange knowledge, ideas, and opportunities with a network of professionals. And speaking of that, LinkedIn has also served as a portal to many great discussions.
LinkedIn Groups, of course, became the forum that gathers all of the questions from many curious minds. There have been many discussions on lean that have been interesting and useful. Here are some of the groups I belong and some of the interesting discussions on lean:
