FTC Disclosures

This site is not primarily financially driven.  The primary aim is to build a community where we can all learn more about the Lean Process.

In the spirit of helping the community I will recommend worthwhile products that I have used and provide links to relevant websites.  I will not endorse any products that I think are poor, or that I have not personally used.

That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.

Per the FTC rules, if I use an affiliate Amazon link that earns me a commission instead of an Amazon link that doesn’t, I would need to specify this.  This would lead to unsightly disclaimers all over the place.  This would be tedious to administrate and a continual eye sore for readers.

To cover my ass and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product I use, the following all hold true:
