      On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom.

                  Because it makes things small and personal -- and thereby helps to dispel Big Company Disease.

                  Big companies take themselves seriously. Laughter punctures the balloon and drenches things in the light of sanity.

                  For organizations big & small, I'd say "embrace your inner smallness".

                  I give a talk called "Everything I Learned I Learned in a Greek Restaurant"

                  People seem to like it.

                  Greek restaurants are the epitome of small, fast and funny.

                  Small and fast always beats big and slow.

                  That's it.
