This quote is from Arthur Jones, an Australian born sociologist, author and former editor of Fortune Magazine and it reminds me of the old saying that ‘we get the politicians we deserve’.
SQT has been fortunate to work with some excellent organisations in the Lean Six Sigma and Continuous Improvement World and by the same token have also witnessed (albeit a handful only) some Organisations that have faltered on that same journey.
