With regards to exponential times I’m referring to the amount of information we are exposed to. I remember reading a excerpt about the amount of information someone is exposed to today versus 100 years ago. Also, change is so rapid, and our ability to assess and respond well to rapid changes is a necessity. This is where knowledge of Lean and other methodologies like PDCA or DMAIC can come in handy.
