L&D: RIP Geary A. Rummler

Today Is the Sad Anniversary of His Death

Geary was a Brooklyn Dodgers fan.


Here we are together in 1982.


I visited with Geary in 1999 to discuss the draft of my book: lean-ISD.

The hat he wears in this photo (taken with his camera) is from my prior consulting firm: CADDI – the Curriculum Architecture Design & Development Institute. He later sent me the photo, plus others, when he also redid my book’s cover and gave me a quote for the cover.

When I asked him how I could repay him for his kindness – he told me to pay it forward – as he had been doing to thank his mentors.

Favorite Video

I shot this short video at the ISPI Conference in 2008 – 6 months before his passing. He had agreed to sit with me for an hour or two at the next conference. And of course – that day never came.
