Name one thing you WISH people knew about your job?
If you work in continuous improvement you are never done learning and learning is very much a social enterprise! It is critical that I stay connected and continue to learn from colleagues in my field. Someone, somewhere is always finding a new approach or a variation on an approach that could apply to a unique situation. I am very fortunate in that most people who work in CI love to share and help one another!
Tell us a secret about your job.
My best breakthroughs or ideas for solutions come to me when I step back and think about something besides CI. Sometimes it helps to take a break and have a walk or just read or listen to something that inspires you.
What is the ONE book that you think I should read RIGHT NOW?
"Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking" by Malcolm Gladwell
