Poll Results – Thanks for the Feedback
I want to thank everyone who participated in the polls about a month ago. The information helped me learn more about who is reading the blog and what topics are preferred in order to drive to a higher satisfaction rate of the readers.
Who is reading Beyond Lean?
- Mid-Level Managers = 40%
- Senior Level Managers = 20%
- Consultants = 20%
I suspected this may be the case. Part of the reason, I am a mid-level manager so my natural perspective is that of a mid-level manager. It is great to see so many senior level managers reading the blog also. What encouraged me the most was seeing the fourth largest group to read the blog was direct line employees (17%). I try to write so it relates to all levels and positions. Seeing the wide spectrum of positions reading Beyond Lean signals that we are relating to a variety of people well.
What features/topics are favorites?
- Posts on Principles/Concepts/Tools = 28%
- Posts by Matt and Joe = 25%
- Lean Series Week = 14%
Seeing the lean series week get a good response is encouraging because it was something we added this year. It seems it has been a success.
Do people enjoy the posts on principles/concepts/tools because the posts help the reader address something they are working on and how to apply it? I hope that is at least part of the reason. We strive to make the posts applicable and easy to relate to.
The feedback does not mean we will stop posting topics and features that rated low. The feedback allows us to focus our content.
