Lean thinking as we know it is probably insufficient to carry organizations into a future of intense global competition, insatiable consumption, environmental sensitivity, and social upheaval.

In most cases, we simply practice a few lean concepts, often without understanding the underlying intent of those concepts, but we get a slightly better outcome and celebrate.

We have to learn more.  We have to understand the fullness of lean to bring through changes in the way we all think about work. -DSV, November 1, 2017
