Autodidacticism and Lean Six Sigma

(7)
If one of the root causes of stagnation happened in the previous centuries due to lack of accessibility to knowledge, then the only requirement of this 21st century is an increased access to learning and recognition of each individual worthiness.
As people around the globe reach to a higher level of knowledge through self- learning the results are astonishing because it matters when self-learning becomes limitless.

Change Management in Lean Six Sigma Projects

 (6)
Change Management as a concept is detailed in technical studies as a systematic shift from the current state to a future state. The current state requires changes when: processes are not properly controlled, people exhibit behaviors that have an overall negative impact on outcome, outdated technologies and equipment that require replacement, changes, upgrading etc.

What makes us promote Lean Six Sigma approach?

(3)

There isn’t much talk about consciousness in Lean Six Sigma projects since this subject seems to belong somewhere between religion and philosophy. Currently, science (word originated from Latin: scientia, meaning "knowledge") has been separated from philosophy and religion, but we should not rush to draw conclusions before we read Aristotelian Physics.

What makes us say that Lean Six Sigma projects fail?

(2)

For certain reasons, I liked when Douglas R. Hofstadter in his book "Godel, Escher, Bach" explained that ants have an interesting organization that exchange continuously information from inside to outside. He went further and explained that ants have a similar behaviour with a brain. I discovered the following web site that provides an interesting view on how ants are organized and work:

What makes us think that Lean Six Sigma projects fail?

(1)


There are many people, companies, blogs etc. who are debating over the failure of the Lean Six Sigma projects. The word project comes from the Latin word projectum from the Latin verb proicere, "to throw something forward" which in turn comes from pro-, which denotes something that precedes the action of the next part of the word in time (paralleling the Greek πρό) and iacere, "to throw". The word "project" thus actually originally meant "something that comes before anything else happens". When the English language initially adopted the word, it referred to a plan of something, not to the act of actually carrying this plan out. Something performed in accordance with a project became known as an "object".

Theory of Change

The Paradoxical Theory of Change Arnold Beisser, M.D.

For nearly a half century, the major part of his professional life, Frederick Perls was in conflict with the psychiatric and psychological establishments. He worked uncompromisingly in his own direction, which often involved fights with representatives of more conventional views. In the past few years, however, Perls and his Gestalt therapy have come to find harmony with an increasingly large segment of mental health theory and professional practice. The change that has taken place is not because Perls has modified his position, although his work has undergone some transformation, but because the trends and concepts of the field have moved closer to him and his work. Perls's own conflict with the existing order contains the seeds of his change theory.

Developing Compassion

 

Some of my friends have told me that, while love and compassion are marvellous and good, they are not really very relevant. Our world, they say, is not a place where such beliefs have much influence or power. They claim that anger and hatred are so much a part of human nature that humanity will always be dominated by them. I do not agree.
