This summer I am working from our Shanghai, China office. My team here has signed me up to lead some seminars. Our China team hosts lean discussion groups they call "salons" so I am looking forward to participating in one of those as well. Topics may include lean leadership, problem solving or whatever else adds value. I'm open to suggestions. If you are here ad want to attend drop a card in the box above, so to speak. Even if you're not interested but are in Shanghai and just want to network let me know.
Now that we have a branch in Chongqing I'm also hoping to venture further inland again. It seems the investment incentives to drive growth are in central and western China now. With 100 million people in and around Chongqing city it's an economic engine in its own right. The US population is 307 million, for reference.
The Expo is on in Shanghai at the moment. I have no idea what to expect from that but the "Japan industrial exhibit hall" caught my eye. What does the future hold for manufacturing? I'm guessing robot workers and self-assembling factories on the moon.
The little Twitter bird doesn't fly in China so my tweets will be quiet for a while unless someone can teach me a way around the firewall. I won't be retrieving voice mails so please call the office if you need to reach me. Posting here also works fairly well.Comments are moderated to filter spam and inappropriate content.
