It is unfortunate that managers are not allowed to smoke cannabis at work. If they were high, they might go for a weed walk and finally see what is actually going on.
Here is a conversation between three managers and their boss, all stoned on Rocket Science while watching a batch-and-queue process:
Boss: “Whoa, that’s fucked up.”
Manager #2: “Soooo fucked up.”
Manager # 1: “Yeah, way fucked up.”
Manager #3: “Man, I can’t believe how fucked up it is.”
Manager #2: “Dude, we’ve been telling each other we’re doing a great job. That’s so wrong.”
Boss: “Whoa, does my work have any meaning?”
Here is a conversation between three Lean managers and their boss, one stoned on Jiffy Pot, the other on Batch Inzanity, the third on Sensei Kush, and the boss on Happie Daze, while observing a process flowing smoothly after kaizen:
Manager 3: “That’s wicked cool.”
Manager 2: “Wow, it makes me want to cry.”
Boss: “It flows. It flows. So beautiful.”
Manager 1: “That’s some rad creativity!”
It turns out you don’t need a burning platform. A burning joint will do just fine!
