I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of politics. I try to be an engaged citizen… but both parties drive me nuts. The cable news networks are all beyond ridiculous. This presidential election cycle takes way too long. There is no truth, just spin… people get their own beliefs and biases reinforced by their favorite news network and the Facebook friends they haven’t hidden. Blah.
So, to amuse myself, I created this fake political battle – a November election between Lean and Six Sigma.
The first ad, from a fake Super PAC called “Six Sigma Horizons.”
Enjoy. I’m sure a rebuttal ad from the Lean PAC will be coming soon — ah, it’s here now.
The Anti-Six Sigma attack ad is below. Aren’t you sick of attack ads?
In all seriousness, unlike the political parties, Lean and Six Sigma can indeed work together. But, a “bi-partisan” cooperation between Lean and Six Sigma doesn’t become “Lean Sigma” anymore than collaboration of the two parties becomes “Republicrat,” I guess.
