The term Lean is a Western invention. Taiichi Ohno said that putting a label on it meant that people would assume it came in a box, that you could simply unpack what was in the box and all would be well. In fact everybody’s business is different. Deming talked about the need for method in the context of a deep understanding of how you work and what you need. He didn’t have a list of the eleventy zillion types of waste, or a set of formulae to apply. Like all good coaches he went where the problem is and used his eyes. He looked at the connections between activities and the flow.
