    When applied to the need to diligently Plan in the PDCA cycle, this quote is priceless.

    Excellent quote, Christian.

    • You are right, Mark. This is definitely a Lean quote way ahead of his time. I was reminded of it when I broke a drill bit the other day that should have been replaced long ago. Thanks for your thoughts.
