To Peterborough on 7th June to visit Print on Demand Worldwide for their Lean Conference. MD Andy Cork spoke about PODW’s lean methodology while Chris Kinsey plied us with cakes and pastries (so not that lean then!). We had speakers from the UK and Germany and I presented lean metadata on behalf of BIC. PODW’s lean agenda combines elimination of wasteful processes with a combined POD and ebook solution and strong green credentials. PODW showed us round their shiny factory with its rows of printing hardware and one publisher was even able to see his own books as they emerged from the gold blocking process.
