Pascal Dennis: Excellence books hit the spot but miss the gemba

By Pascal Dennis, - Last updated: Monday, July 11, 2011
In my view, the "Excellence" authors basically got it right.  (I continue to refer to them.) But the "Excellence" books are (necessarily) academic. The Lean movement has brought these ideas into the messy world of practice -- a great and continuing contribution. Imagine a messy changeover kaizen in an Indiana stamping plant.  The team stands glaring at you with their arms crossed. Can we cut changeover time in half?  Can we teach these jokers how to sustain & make further improvements? Our revered and scary gemba -- where the proverbial rubber hits the road...
