Two New Quotes I Like
I heard a great quote at a conference today. I would give attribution, but I'm not sure if I have the OK to cite the person and company (they keep below the radar):
“Lean can make a good manager great. It won't turn a bad manager into a good one.”
I'm paraphrasing, a bit, but I believe the statement 100%. You?
I heard another quote that I remembered reading, but it registered more deeply today. Toyota's Katsuaki Watanabe said in HBR (via The Associated Renewal Blog):
There's no genius in our company. We just do whatever we believe is right, trying every day to improve every little it and piece. But when 70 years of very small improvements accumulate, they become a revolution.
That's a philosophy that's hard to copy!
