Literacy and Lean Six Sigma

(12-1)


In 21st century new definitions evolve to reach for other dimensions as the world continues to develop to finding new meanings in the Universe. Literacy was known as to refer to those with the ability to read and write. Today's definition reaches another realm and UNESCO's regards 'literacy', in an attempt to recognize the diversity of definitions attributed to the term, as being beyond simply "the set of technical skills of reading, writing and calculating to a plural notion encompassing the manifold of meanings and dimensions of these undeniably vital competencies. Such a view, responding to recent economic, political and social transformations, including globalization, and the advancement of information and communication technologies, recognizes that there are many practices of literacy embedded in different cultural processes, personal circumstances and collective structures".

Why developing empathy in the Lean Six Sigma world is important?

 (8)

There are many people and organizations that promote empathy in the world. The question that I have is why not all people have empathy? Based on research performed that used MRI to track brain changes, people who have a high level of empathy show that certain regions in the brain are activated when exposed to emotions. These include insula, or insular cortex, which is associated with bodily representations of emotions, and the temporoparietal junction, which previous research has shown to be involved in distinguishing between oneself and others, as well as in perceiving the mental and emotional states of others.

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.

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.
