Lean Quotes

  • “If you are going to do kaizen continuously you’ve got to assume that things are a mess. Too many people just assume that things are all right the way they are. Aren’t you guys convinced that the way you’re doing things is the right way? That’s no way to get anything done. Kaizen is about changing the way things are. If you assume that things are all right the way they are, you can’t do kaizen. So change something!” ~ Taiichi Ohno, father of Toyota Production System (TPS)
  • “Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” ~ George Bernard Shaw
  • “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” ~ Albert Einstein
  • “Agile values ask us to make progress with imperfect information and to rework later as we learn more. Lean Product Development teaches us to understand the cost of delay and to recognize that earlier, faster progress to a partial solution is often better than delaying to acquire better information leading to a more complete solution.”  ~ David J. Anderson
  • “Make your workplace into showcase that can be understood by everyone at a glance. In terms of quality, it means to make the defects immediately apparent. In terms of quantity, it means that progress or delay, measured against the plan, and is made immediately apparent. When this is done, problems can be discovered immediately, and everyone can initiate improvement plans.” ~ Taiichi Ohno, father of Toyota Production System (TPS)
  • “Decide the outer boundaries of the kanban system. It is often best to limit this to the immediate span of political control. Do not force visualization, transparency, and WIP limits on any department that does not volunteer to collaborate.”  ~ David J. Anderson
