Lean Manufacturing

A book on lean manufacturing
Lately I've been learning a lot about LEAN manufacturing at Foundry Academy.  Basically, it's a manufacturing philosophy revolving around eliminating unnecessary work and wasted resources in the production environment (AKA common sense).  Since it seems like such a basic concept, it puzzled me why they waited so long to teach us about it since it seems that teenagers across America are already getting into lean at stunning rates.  For this reason, I don't think I will be getting a career doing lean since the job market will be already saturated by the time I graduate.  Besides, I saw this video on lean manufacturing, and it kinda turned me off to the whole idea altogether.  It also reminded me of a time in high school when I was actually accused of lean manufacturing before I even knew what it was; I was just trying to sell my friends Kool Aid mixed with Mountain Dew! 

Overall, I mean no disrespect any practitioners of lean, I just don't think it's for me.  Besides, it's also illegal.
