Quality experts know all about the “eight types of waste.” And for many of the rest of us – we assume that this concept must be above our skill set. It must be some technical manufacturing process improvement technique that requires a lot of analysis and math.
Nope. That is a misconception. How often have you seen people:
• Spend time on the wrong priority?
• Put additional effort in a project that had no return on investment?
• Run down details and information that were superfluous?
That is wasted excellence.
