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
