Lean is dead?
I know that you can say whatever you want in the press, particularly if you’re trying to sell this, but I couldn’t believe I read this:
I had a feeling as I went into this that people had reached their limits working on Lean Manufacturing on the production floor. Many companies had reached what they thought was the limit of their savings, and they didn’t know where to go next. That’s why I wrote this book: I knew that there were opportunities out there â€” I call it Beyond Lean â€” so I established a blog to ask for savings ideas.
This from Patricia Moody talking about her new book, The Big Squeeze. She basically asked people how they saved money (sounds like kaizen to me). I didn’t read the book, and honestly, I will not. I hate to be this negative, but how could someone who’s actually contributed to books on lean understand so little about it. Apparently most companies are done their lean journey, have eliminated all their waste and needed to be saved. Thank goodness no one thought to look at the supply chain – there’s waste there, in case you didn’t know. Sorry for the sarcasm, but I’m outright mad that people can write so irresponsibly.
