Disputes are about processesare disagreements or differences of opinion about the way that something should be done. Disputes are nothing new at work.
In Lean companies, the challenge is that processes are always changing. This provides multiple opportunities for disputes to arise.
The good news is that most companies also have standardization and metrics in place. This provides a backdrop against which to compare both sides of a dispute. In this type of environments, disputes can and should be resolved with facts and data.
