Banana Skins

Most of the time we get things right.... at least if we have the skills to accomplish what we set out to do.


Occasionally, though, we slip on a banana skin - and we get something wrong.


A defect in Lean terms (one of the 7 wastes).


It is almost impossible to avoid all defects - though, of course, we try very hard.


What matters is how we deal with our mistakes - how we learn from them.


So, when you spot a mistake - don't assign 'blame', assign 'responsibility'  - for learning the lessons and making improvements.
