  • The way is the goal.

  • The KAIZEN Way or is the way of self discovery and in the end

    the way of self fulfilment.

    Although the way is long, there are on this way many rewards.

    It all starts with the first shot

    Why do birds fly in formation? Do they all know the way?

    How do they know the direction?

    Let us observe and try to understand

    the flocking behavior of birds.

    Alignment is an emergent property of complex system that arises out of

    individual behavior.

    What is the individual bird behavioral pattern that creates

    and sustains such flocking formation as a group?

  • Let us observe the behavior of one individual bird

    The behavior of one bird depends on the

    behavior of other birds dynamically.

    The bird avoids contact with

    others within the red Trust Circle.

    The bird adds up the vector of flying direction

    of all birds within the green Connectivity Circle

    and adapts its own direction and speed.

    The bird observes two parameter

    dynamically: trust and connectivity.

    The Alignment level depends on two parameters:

    the circle of trust and the circle of connectivity.

    It is important to understand that the average connectivity degree of a network

    influences its performance.

    The behavior of a network is not linear

    As long as the connectivity degree remains under a certain

    threshold, the network performance follows an almost

    constant linear growth.

    Once we achieve a certain critical point, things

    change dramatically

    passed a certain connectivity degree,

    the networks performance grows

    exponentially.

    SHODO () CAN TELL A LOT ABOUT

    PEOPLE

    LIKE WHAT FOR

    INSTANCE?

    SHODO () MEANS THE WAY OF CALLIGRAPHY

    SHIT!

    WHAT CAN YOU SEE ON THE PAPER?

    HERE

    WHAT DO YOU MEAN? IT IS BEST

    IF YOU LEARN ALL THE TIME

    IT IS THE MARK THAT

    YOU LEAVE IN A MOMENT

    HOPEFULLY YOU LEAVE THE MARK

    YOU WANTED BECAUSE IT IS ALL

    YOU HAVE

    WELL A SYMBOLAND WHAT IS THE SYMBOL MADE OF?

    A LINE

    AND WHAT DOES IT MAKE IT A LINE?

    ARE YOU NUTS?I MEAN IT ALL SERIOUSLY.

    THE LINES WERE PAINTED WITH A PINSEL.WHAT IS SURROUNDING US

    IN THE ZENDO?

    PAPER WALLS. AND WHAT MAKES THEM WALLS?

    THE SPACE. WHAT DOES MAKE A LINE UP?

    THE SPACE AROUND IT! BOTH THE FORM AND THE SPACE AND HOW THEY INTERACT ARE IMPORTANT.

    THE WAY OF CALLIGRAPHY AND THE WAY OF KAIZEN ARE ALL ABOUT HOW THESE TO

    REALITIES INTERACT.WHAT YOU MEAN IS

    ZENDO () IS A ROOM WERE TO FIND ZEN.

  • The natural of a process is a circle.

    If you ask yourself if its better or worse to start bottom-

    up or top-down, this very question IS the problem.

    But be careful and aware! Leaders in

    organizations define the nature

    of success. Always observe

    the POWER-STRUCTURE within the organization.

  • Amicus Plato, sed magis

    amica Veritas.

    I really admire Mike Rother, but his KATA

    related Idea of Future States could drive you to disaster!

    The reason for this is the

    Buddha-Nature of any

    Process.

    The problem is that, whenever I

    explain this in such terms, west managers make fun of it and say I am outspaced.

    West Managers typically do not understand this

    spirituality. Thats why I will use natural science to get those folks to

    listen.

    If we try to visualize POWER-STRUCTURES in organizations as gravitational fields, we will soon

    see organizations as very complex systems.

    The elements in the organization struggle in a

    constant fight for resources.

    Just like with the flocking behavior of birds, the action of every individual influences all the rest.

    So, what does all this mean for the organizational dynamics, and what does this have to do with the incompleteness

    of Rothers KATA Model?

  • In the Rother KATA Model, Goals play the role of the

    sun. All turns around them following a clockwork

    PDCA Circle.

    But what if the sun would move (as it does in

    reality)? The the beautiful clock-

    work that KATA describes would not work anymore.

    What we have is a spiral. Much more

    complex in its nature, because it is

    describing a dynamic non-linear process.

    So as the earth is not flat, the reality of the KAIZEN process is not fully

    represented by Rothers KATA

    The dynamic in the organization

    represents the KAIZEN Way.

    This Dynamic can only be understood

    from an emergent

    perspective.
