In this episode of the Memory Makers Podcast, hosts Russ Van Natta and Danny Gruening discuss the benefits of 2 Second LEAN, a book by Paul Akers. Through the lens of Paul’s book, we talk about practical strategies for eliminating waste and improving efficiency in any business setting. From identifying the eight categories of waste to implementing the three S’s (Sweep, Sort, Standardize), Russ and Danny provide actionable insights to empower teams and enhance customer experiences.
