Event Description

Tues Feb 26, 2019 – David Hughes on Metaphorically Speaking: Powerful metaphors for Lean Systems Thinking.

SPEAKER

DAVID HUGHES

TOPIC

Metaphorically Speaking: Powerful metaphors for Lean Systems Thinking

DESCRIPTION "Flow" is among the most powerful Lean metaphors and, yet, many practitioners are content with superficial understanding. Cognitive studies confirm that figurative language is one of the most common expressions of creative behavior in everyday life. The conscious use of metaphor is enshrined in the Kanban Method, eXtreme Programming, Lean Manufacturing, and other systems engineering patterns.

Indeed, "fluid intelligence" is a deliciously apt metaphor that describes this area of interest in psychology. The learning objective of this talk is to enhance your appreciation of the power of metaphor in the service of Lean and Systems Thinking through fun, thought-provoking examples.
