Lean Blog Flashback to 2014: The NY Jets & Copying

New York Jets vs Jacksonville Jaguars Military CeremonyThis week, I'm taking a week off from new blog posts due to a pressing deadline for the 3rd edition of my book Lean Hospitals, our first KaiNexus User Conference, and few other things.

Here is a post from today's date, October 28, from last year. Organizations get in trouble when they copy a Lean tool or method and they don't have the entire system and mindset in place. It's a Catch 22 — we want to learn from others, but sometimes copying is the worst thing to do.

How did the New York Jets seem to get caught in that trap last year?
