I am looking to join a company that truly - truly wants to improve its market position by competing against itself...
I think the term 'lean' ought to be taking away and replaced with something more akin to our nature as human beings when we work together. I have often found myself at a disadvantage just because of the job title on my business card; Lean something or other Manager, Continuous Improvement this or that Leader. The word 'lean' is a actually a term coined as an American invention, not Japanese. The whole movement that started at Toyota has been bastardized by forced suggesting a collectivistic cultured way of doing things to an individualistic cultured way of doing things. I think it would be better used by the expression WorkStyle.
"The first company to truly, truly adopt the acculturation of lean as a their business philosophy will be the most successful company ever." - Fred Webberking
