At the end of the year, John Hunter does a great job of facilitating an annual roundup of business and lean blogs at Curious Cat Management. The roundup is a review of blogs by other bloggers. This year I have the honor of participating in the Blog Carnival Annual Roundup.
A couple of years ago, I met David Kasprzak through blogging. David is a professional that has worked in large companies throughout his career and recently finished his MBA. During this time he started his blog, My Flexible Pencil.
David covers a wide range of topics. He discusses observations of business he has from being with his family, like how helping his son pick something out for show-n-tell was a lesson in teaching people how to develop answers not directing them towards an answer.
David also blogs around business issues like continuous improvement, project management and behavior & culture. At the beginning of 2012 David had a long series of blogs about ROWE (Results-Only Work Environment). The topic spurred great conversation from many in lean and ROWE alike. David wrote a few blogs on the similarities and differences of ROWE and Lean. Then wrote his own thoughts after hearing both perspectives. I think it is worth reading and developing your own opinion on the subject.
I read a lot of blogs and respond when I have time to as many as I can, but My Flexible Pencil has caused me to sit back, think and respond more than any other blog. My Flexible Pencil is a great read.
