Connect with the LinkedIn IIE Lean Division group!
The IIE Lean Division now has a LinkedIn group up &
running! Our group is a subgroup of the
IIE LinkedIn group, and is a great place to virtually network, learn, and share
with other lean practitioners from various backgrounds and across different
industries. We have nearly 400 members
and are looking forward to welcoming more members. If you have not yet joined the group, click here to do so.
The quality of this LinkedIn group is truly a member-driven
effort, so here are some quick tips on making this group a value-added resource
- Respect "rules of engagement" – Post
content in the appropriate areas in the group.
- Discussions:A forum where you can ask questions, start
conversations and share ideas.
- Promotions: A "brag board" for articles, blog posts,
websites, products/services and IIE webinars that you are personally involved with.
- Jobs: The group includes a listing of current job postings.
- Write short
headlines – Try to convince the reader in seven words or less to read the rest
of the details of your post. Short and
- Post relevant content – Seems like it
would be a no-brainer, but anything related to lean practices, concepts,
trends, etc., is fair game.
- Engage others – Convey a strong "call
to action," whether you are trying to inform, entertain, persuade, question,
- Direct readers to outside sources –
You've provided a "call to action," so now provide a venue for readers to take
action. Make sure your sources are valid
Looking forward to connect with all of you via the IIE Lean
Division LinkedIn group!
