Newt Gingrich

Please watch this Video. Newt Gingrich is wrong on one point. We should not teach lean to every member of congress, we should DEMAND that they are Lean experts in order to be a part of congress. We don’t have the time to teach them Lean.

Lean: Packaging on Demand

My friend Todd Peterson at Kaas Tailored met with Packsize recently. I wanted to share this video with you because it shows clear demonstrations of many lean principles such as one-piece-flow, eliminating batchwork, and just in time. Plus, I’m always looking for ways to share all the clear examples I can even if they don’t relate directly to government.
