At the 2018 AME Conference in Boston, I finally met Ron Pereira of Gemba Academy at Tuesday evening’s cocktail hour. I had done an interview with Ron almost a year prior, and was excited to meet him in person. We chatted for a bit, then he asked me if I wanted to do a video interview the following morning.
I hesitated – there would be almost no time to prepare. But, what an opportunity! So I said yes. And I’m glad I did – I think it turned out well, and I know I enjoyed having a chance to talk about the lessons I learned from and after leaving Toyota.
