Why does lean feel weird?

George Koenigsaecker of Simpler Consulting has been a leader in Lean implementation in the US for 20 years now. I had the chance to hear George speak at a conference recently. Later, I spent another half hour in the hallway with him, pursuing details on both the human and the technical aspects of a lean system.

In his presentation, George identified nine ways in which a lean perspective runs counter to the way most of us think. Over the next couple of weeks, I'm going to describe them and then, in my own words, try to articulate how we run into this in a post-frame construction environment. I welcome your input.
