How true is this statement by Dr. Shingo? Oftentimes improvement means trying something new, different or out of the ordinary. This is the essence of innovation. Whether it is a new diet, new technique or a unique innovation, trying something new will help you improve.
Sometimes you may feel as though the small and simple improvements are easier to work around or that eliminating a little waste here in there is not as important as other things you do. As Greg Louganis once said: “Never underestimate your ability to make someone else's life better – even if you never know it.” You never really know how your actions today could affect tomorrow so don't underestimate yourself.
Though you can't always drive improvements through other people and sometimes not even through a team. You can always be an example of Improvements. Remember the way the word is spelled says it the best, "IMPROVEMENT BEGINS WITH I." Inspire your team today with this digital poster on Lean Strategies International LLC.
