Updated – Weekend Fun: Political Parody Ad & Rebuttal
I don't know about you, but I'm sick of politics. I try to be an engaged citizen… but both parties drive me nuts. The cable news networks are all beyond ridiculous. This presidential election cycle takes way too long. There is no truth, just spin… people get their own beliefs and biases reinforced by their favorite news network and the Facebook friends they haven't hidden. Blah.
So, to amuse myself, I created this fake political battle – a November election between Lean and Six Sigma.
The first ad, from a fake Super PAC called “Six Sigma Horizons.”
Enjoy. I'm sure a rebuttal ad from the Lean PAC will be coming soon — ah, it's here now.
The Anti-Six Sigma attack ad is below. Aren't you sick of attack ads?
In all seriousness, unlike the political parties, Lean and Six Sigma can indeed work together. But, a “bi-partisan” cooperation between Lean and Six Sigma doesn't become “Lean Sigma” anymore than collaboration of the two parties becomes “Republicrat,” I guess.

Very inspiring..I think this could give a balanced perspective. Similar like there is no one best method to do one job, there is also no one best philosophy for a company. One could be best in one situation and bad in another. I get the point and both the video really describe a situation that exist but sometimes not many of us aware of its existence. Thank you..
My point with the parody ads is not to criticize Lean or Six Sigma… it’s more about how political parties (or Super PACs) will twist and distort things to their benefit or to reinforce biases that people already have.
Lean and Six Sigma are more about finding objective fact-based truths and improvements more than our political process.
