    Boondoggle Rules

    Topic: Management Improvement, Lean Thinking

    Easy Lean from Got Boondoggle:

    The lean journey is a long, continuous process of learning, experimentation and improvement.
    ...
    Most of you are smart enough not to buy into this branding of lean. However, there are some short-sighted executives that might fall for this slick shortcut to "Easy Lean." That would be a shame. For those with limited lean enlightenment, I will provide a few short rules to get past the branding of "Easy Lean."

    • Lean is not easy
    • There are NO software solutions in lean.
    • Always Simplify first, Automate last (and automate only if needed)
    • If it sounds too good to be true, it is!

    Another great post from the great Got Boondoggle blog.
