..still struck me as odd.
I’m ordering a cake for a party, and want to get a photo cake. So I ask the bakery if they do them. They said no problem, just bring us the picture.
My pics are all digital, so I asked if I could use a .jpg file. I was told no, I’d need to bring an actual photo.
What do they do then? Why, they scan the photo to make a digital copy. But they can only do it if I bring the picture in.
And no one, it seems, notices anything wrong with this system.
The thing I love about Lean is that it changes your mindset, and gets you to look at the world differently. The problem is you can’t turn it off, and end up struggling to order a cake without trying to re-engineer the whole process.
