I was catching up with a data center operations executive drinking some good Black Raven Beer in a Deschutes Brewery Growler in Deschutes Imperial Pints.
My son and I visited the Deschutes brewery and on the wall is a plaque with the following Lean Principles.
- Do our best and next time do it better
- Focus on processes and systems as well as results
- Problems are opportunities
- Standardization allows creativity
- All work leads to damn tasty beer
- Don’t take yourself too seriously
I don't think I've seen a sign like this in a data center, but I have seen beer. :-)
