Great Lean Example: HON
OK, sorry for my cynicsm on the blog today. Must be because the Red Sox blew it today.
Here’s a very positive, encouraging article about what lean can do for you organization. Cool story:
“When introducing the topic of lean manufacturing, HON Co. executive Todd Murphy falls back on the old example of a glass half full (or half empty) with liquid, but there’s a twist. Murphy transfers the liquid to a smaller glass that it fills completely. To the lean mind, he says, the original glass was simply too big for the job.”
