Last week, I was invited to speak at a Meet The Writer event at ING. A group of enthusiastic readers invited me to talk about Super7 Operations – the Next Step for Lean in Financial Service
We had interesting discussions about teamwork and cooperation. What made the Super7’s such a success? (it was the people that did it). What did it bring to the operations departments where Super7 was introduced? (more engagement, lower costs, better service)
Next to that, I was asked about “Menno van Dijk the writer”. What made me want to write this book (basically, I’m so enthousiastic about what people can achieve when they truely work together, and I wanted to share this whit as many people as possible)? And how much time it took to write a book (three months), and to get it published (another 9 months).
Afterwards, books were signed and the participants said the session was worth their while. Plans are already being made for a second “Meet the Writer – Menno van Dijk” event.
