In this segment, Jeffrey Liker presents a clear explanation of how a manage-by-the-numbers approach with disconnected processes leads people to hide their defects and make the numbers look good even when their work may be negatively impacting other processes.

A culture where workers’ creativity was applied to playing a game of numbers can transform into a culture where that creativity can be applied toward actually improving processes.
