In this week's episode of Being Human, I talk with Lean icons, husband-and-wife authors and teachers, Mary and Tom Poppendieck. Mary and Tom travel the world helping people to create and deliver stunning products and services through the power of the Lean approach. We talk:

- The origins of Lean as fundamentally about people working at their best
- The metaphor of double-entry bookkeeping for building in software quality
- Why business should focus on flow efficiency, not resource efficiency
- Why you should *not* be automating your business processes
- The first questions to ask yourself in starting a Lean journey
