What lean is all about

Dear FastCap Team:

It is so important that we utilize common sense when making improvements if we don’t we will look like everyone else. If you want to know commonsense looks like it is very simple:

– Spend every dollar and every second of time you work as if you were paying the bills. Other People’s money has no value, but when it’s yours it changes everything!!!

– when I flew to Mercedes-Benz to speak to them they offered to fly me in business class. It would’ve been about $8,000. I said no, I will fly economy I wouldn’t spend my money that way so I’m not going to spend yours any different than I would spend mine. When you spend other peoples money like it’s yours, then and only then do you truly understand what lean is all about.
