ReBlog: #Lean meets #SixSigma meets Frankenstein, or show me the money!

I think you will spend 31 seconds reading this post

Nice article from Dan Strongin about the fact that most often, Lean and Six Sigma are not much more than tool-waving, producing local gains at the expense of global costs.

How come it’s so difficult for management to understand that people are not machines? Taylor wondered why when you buy hands, a mind is sold with them (indeed, Lean discovered years later that not only does this mind come for free, but the company has more success when you use it!). Now, it’s being said that when you buy a head, you’re given a heart for free.

Hint, hint!
