Tweet I attended an Alan Jackson concert last week at the Bryce Jordan Center in State College. At the final song, which I think was “Good Time” the producers made an attempt to get the crowd excited. Pictures of JoePa flashed on the screen followed by pictures of the Philadelphia Eagles. The crowd roared for PSU and was silent for the Eagles. The metaphor here is that in order for the same lean tools to stick from organization to organization the correct cultural adaptations must be made. Tweet

If your team has a good sense of what the top cause is (or a top cause that is more easily solved), start your problem solving sheet there! If you’re still in the dark after identifying all the potential causes, go ahead and use a pareto diagram to keep track of the causes. Once... 

Tweet Question: My team is using problem solving? Do I need to solve ALL these problems? Answer: No. Too many problems? Once per month, utilize your balanced score card to isolate your TOP problems in safety, quality, productivity, human development and cost from the previous month. Recognize your top problems and attack these.
