4 Complicated Words vs. 4 Easy Ones
My friend and guest blogger Liz Guthridge (“The Lean Communicator”) would get a kick out of this.
I was at a meeting recently and a speaker, with a background from a very famous global consulting firm, had this phrase as part of a slide:

I guess you don’t get paid big consulting bucks for saying “Work as a team.” That was absolutely the point, simply put, that he was trying to get across.
Let’s not try to overcomplicate things, when talking about Lean, innovation, or what have you.
