The reason why I am writing this article is an observation of mine around some office environments where working more is considered better than working efficiently. I tried to understand this phenomenon. From Lean perspective it is always flow what matters much , but, why still people insist on resource efficiency ? What are the things from real life making this hard to focus on flow efficiency ?
Yes, it is true. Half of the most successful US companies are now gone. Reason is digitalization wave , but, I'll mention something more than the term itself. It is, the speed of realization of different world and adopting to it as quickly as possible. This is what is critical. To see, understand and adapt for changing environment for corporate benefit. Half of most successful companies in US could not make it. They are now out of big boys league.
