Some of the most spirited lean discussion is taking place on the Evolving Excellence blog, always a good read. The post I'm linking to discusses the effectiveness of lean assessments, such as the Shingo Prize. The controversy is over failed, bankrupt companies like Delphi winning so many Shingo's. If management is so inept and/or the business model is so poor, how is that lean?
No easy answers on this. I've posted some of my thoughts as “Comments” underneath their posting. I enjoy the discussion and welcome people to comment and discuss things here on this blog, if you're so inclined.
