Weekend Fun: Beer Kaizen Parody Video
Props to KCOE for the spot-on parody video of Bruce Hamilton's legendary Toast KAIZEN”: Introduction to Lean Principles DVD. Even if you just watch the first few minutes, it's pretty priceless if you're familiar with “Toast.”
Highlights for me included:
- “Gettin' some beers for my buddies….”
- The intentional (I think) skewering of blind adoption of 1-piece flow (putting each beer in the freezer to chill one at a time)
- “Somebody really ought to do those dishes…”
- “… OK, as long as it's not Sam Adams!”
But again, that is a serious point to be made that sometimes small batches are actually more efficient than single piece flow. I know that sounds like sacrilege, but blindly moving to one-piece flow before the process can handle it can cause A LOT of problems. Thanks for a funny video.
