Have you noticed a fundamental division among the Process Improvement community? Do “Six Sigma die-hards”, “Lean-purists” and “new-age Organizational Development specialists” keep your organization from finding common ground?

As leaders and intercessors of organizations, we must treat cognitive development seriously. We must become deliberate and explicit about constructing a process for developing thinkers."
