Lean in Iran?


I was checking out the blog server logs and it claims there was a blog visitor from “Iran, Islamic Republic Of”. Yes, that Iran.

They searched MSN for the phrase “lean production toyota” and found my blog. I suppose they would have manufacturing there and that they would want to get better. Interesting.

    At least the search term was not: “Lean process to exterminate the infidels”
    Or “Applying lean principles to the manufacture of Atomic bombs and other WMDs”

    Well that certainly was a brave comment to make Mr. or Ms. Anonymous.

    It’s terribly ignorant to think all people there are terrorists. There must be some people trying to live a normal live building products, something we should be able to appreciate as lean people.

    It wasn’t very funny.
