From all walks of life

Welcome to The Outliers Inn; a podcast where respectful irreverence and self-deprecating humor is the order of the day! It’s a place where we can be a lot less serious about ourselves, what we do, what our businesses do, and the manner in which they do it. The Outliers Inn is always serving up juicy morsels, treats, and tidbits – but you have to bring your own legal beverage of choice.

Whether you are in finance, sales, logistics, production. operations, human resources. facilities management. information technology – whatever your role might be – business people are always taking themselves too seriously – or are taken too seriously by others. 

All that ends here.

We are welcoming, inclusive, and open to all comers and invited guestsWe encourage people from diverse backgrounds and experiences to keep the conversations fresh and rich with wisdom. And we strive to create a warm, casual and safe environment; so come as you are and be who you are.

Some of the banter is fun and refreshing, some of it is rather flat and stale. In any case, it’s always genuine. Whatever you choose, we’ll provide reliably amateur and random input which will occasionally leave the conversation obfuscated and declarified. The show is recorded, not live – and we eagerly await your moment in the glare of the audio spotlight to share what’s on your mind.

Posted on
Topic: There are laws of nature, which are absolute.  If we find an error in these laws, it is not nature which is wrong, but our understanding of nature that is wrong.  Compare this with laws made by man which, as such, evolve – can be bent or broken by man to suit man’s purpose.  When we hear about Lean initiatives failing, we often hear…
