I do apologize for the lack of posts lately. It has been really easy for me to neglect my promise to make, at minimum, weekly posts. The end of the school year, finals, and vacations flew by without any attention to all of you.

So on to other things. Have any of you heard of the Shingo prize? If you go to USU and have been in the business building, you have noticed a large, metal, gear with a red ribbon going through it, that is the Shingo prize. USU is the host for the Shingo prize. Basically the Shingo prize is a prestigious award given to manufacturing businesses that are operating the most effective and efficiently. A major philosophy that is being promoted is LEAN Training. It is an innovative program that aids any business in their goals to operating more effective and efficiently.

Why do I bring it up? LEAN is only offered at physical locations, what the Shingo prize committee wants to do is offer LEAN training online. This would make it easier for businesses around the nation to be able to receive training without having to travel to Utah to other universities for the training. I have volunteered to help set up this online LEAN Training course. I am working on the Marketing side of things and was wondering if any of you have any thoughts on a good way to catch students attention and interest it taking LEAN courses. Having an employee in the leadership of a business that is LEAN certified can be a very valuable asset to any company. Our market are students and existing business leaders

If you have any thoughts on what I can focus on that would be great. I hope you all had a great holiday and a happy new year.
