    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Knowledge sharing - some good training/knowledge such as defect prevention process & 7 keys to success in project management (part of project management fundamental course)

    Cons

    Too much of processes!

    The implementation of GDF/Lean is more of a management reporting to the global, rather than understand what is happening on the ground.

    Just ask any ground staff in IBM who is involved in GDF/lean and you will know the staff's morale is at all time low.

    Even with the name of 'global', it's more of a few line summary of what to do.

    On how to implement it and with what tool - You figure out yourself.

    That's why it's a Global Disaster Framework.

    Advice to Management

    Reflect the staff's morale, because of GDF/lean to global, rather than the management report of how well it's done.

    They are human, not robot.

    P/S: Lean is for manufacturing process.
