“Win”-dow Washing: Standardized Work or Kaizen?
I try to keep things light here on Saturdays… one of my favorite sites is failblog.org and their related blogs. Although they normally document problems and bad designs and mishaps that would constitute a “FAIL,” they often have something that might be considered a “WIN,” such as this airport window washer in the video below.
As one of the YouTube commenters asked, “how else is he supposed to wash it?”
Good point. I'm curious if this is the standard practice (probably) or is it an example of “kaizen” from employee creativity.
Either way, have some fun watching the video and others over on FailBlog.
