What really keeps performance from slipping back? Mike Rother of the University of Michigan, and Jeff Uitenbroek from Modine Manufacturing Company suggest that the “wedge” of standardization that we’re taught will keep improvement from rolling back is a mistaken idea.

This is an issue Jeff and Mike feel the Lean community should now be talking about, and the AME LinkedIn group has first crack at discussing it. Comment here or go to LinkedIn groups and search for Association for Manufacturing Excellence.
