5S Will Help You Fight Monsters?


I'm traveling and will probably be away from the blog through Sunday unless something really big happens in the Lean world. I have a lot of posts for next week that I'm going to be working on, including one story about a retailer and how they manage people (poor Dr. Deming would spin in his grave or laugh at them from beyond). I'll also have a post defending GM's people as not being “idiots” as a writer at the WSJ implied this week.

For now, here is a crazy “5S video that I think is from Brazil, in Portuguese. I'm not expecting it to help your Lean efforts, but if anyone can help explain, please do… Or is it from Italy? Give it time…. I swear, 5S pops up eventually.

    I am not sure that video makes sense in any language. Please post a translation if you get it.
