Lean Confusion? You can say that again
Recently Industry Week published an article called Lean Confusion. In it was the following data from their surveys:
What really shocks me is that 25 percent of companies feel that their lean journey is “complete”.
How is this possible? Here’s my real struggle with this idea. If they have gotten far enough down the lean journey to even consider the question of complete, how have they not learned that lean is a ongoing journey that never ends?
I am also curious how zero percent of companies claim to have no implementation. This is not at all consistent with my own data. I would think that their net is broader than mine.
There is lean confusion, but now I’m confused. Anyone have any thoughts as to what this data tells us?
