Weekend Fun: Skinny Cow Handling

3

skinnycow1And, now to the lighter side of Lean for the weekend.

Hat tip to my friend and author Naida Grunden for pointing out this funny news story… apparently the State of Washington has to translate their web pages into different languages… the Spanish translation turned “lean practices” into “skinny cow handling.” I don't think this has anything to do with “Skinny Cow” brand ice cream and products

See the video here:

Now go handle those skinny cows!

    Thanks for sharing. This may not be as far from the truth as you think!

    If you and your readers are interested in learning more about “lean practices” in the dairy industry, I’ll be co-presenting with Jeff Weisel, CEO of Chosen Acres at the up-coming Shingo Conference in Sandusky, OH on May 7th.

      Wow. Thanks for sharing that, Tim!

      Looking forward to seeing you in June at the Lean Healthcare Transformation Summit.

  2. […] Mark Graban recently posted a funny story about government websites losing something in their translation to Spanish.  In Washington state, the term “Lean Practices” translated as “Skinny Cow Handling”.  See the story here.  https://www.leanblog.org/2014/02/weekend-fun-skinny-cow-handling/ […]
