Are You Making Excuses or Solving Problems?
Here is a 10-minute talk I gave at the 2014 Lean Transformation Summit. I'm introduced by Jim Womack and we do Q&A at the end.
Looking at your own organization today, do you hold yourself back by making excuses or do you get creative and find new ways of doing things? Many organizations aspire to a culture of continuous improvement… at least for a while, until it gets difficult. Leaders say things like, “We don't have time for improvement.” Is that an excuse that leads you to give up or is that a problem that you can solve with a bit of moxie and creativity?
