Our Lean Horoscope


I'm not a horoscope guy, but my client team found these in the paper yesterday and we all had a good dorky lean chuckle about how these different horoscopes applied to lean! Click on each photo for a larger, more readable view.

The first one was very relevant to Standard Work and 5S!

Virgo's was ironic as we were just starting our 5S “sorting” activity, finding those items that were either expired or no longer needed…. a “treasure” of sorts.

Scorpio (mine) should have said: “Implementing isolated lean principles, such as 5S, does not lead to a sustainable lean transformation. You have the right management on board to transform their behaviors to encourage a true lean culture, including a living standard work and kaizen system.”
