Michel Baudin's curator insight, September 28, 2013 12:14 PM

This is similar to supplier groups as organized in Japan: non-competitors helping each other improve performance through joint projects. In this case, it appears to be organized directly by the participating companies, rather than by a common customer.

Standardization: the End to Flexibility and Creativity | Dumontis

Standardization: the End to Flexibility and Creativity | Dumontis | Lean | Dumontis | Scoop.it

One of the key elements in Lean is standardization. And despite the fact that standardization in Lean thinking is not the same as harmonization or making everything identical, the public opinion is that standardization will reduce flexibility and kill creativity. So why then does Lean focus on standardization? Could it be that the public opinion is wrong? Could standardization lead to more flexibility instead of less? And could standardization possibly require more creativity rather than eliminating it?

Pff, long vid, starts being interesting after 1 hour w presentations of Kaizen initiatives. Personally I don't like these long sitting meetings. Better to do yokoten between departments, make functional managers and leaders make cross-visits between plants and divisions and have a hierarchically setup competition focusing on method application instead of contents.
