Principles of Flow & Pull

Chris Butterworth, S A Partners Asia Pacific head, has written another blog for the Shingo Institute which is entitled ‘The Principle of Flow & Pull’.

In the blog Chris highlights the fact that this principle is not just for manufacturing, but can be applied in many different ways.  Drawing on a recent trip to Nairobi, he uses his experience of using the local bus service in the area, how the population is of a similar size to Sydney, but that they use two very different systems of operation/time tabling.

It makes very interesting reading in a compare and contrast type, and well worth a read.
