You’ve fundamentally changed the way I think about every process.

If everyone started applying OI, the world would be… where it should be.

I think it’s been a lot of fun. It’s a practical process. It’s quite clearly mapped. You can understand; I think that’s how I’ve experienced it. There’s a real tying together of the Outside-in to a pragmatic way of thinking about improvement to an empirical base, to show people that it’s real and to do it quickly and I think that’s been refreshing.
Reynardt Uys, CEO and co-founder, Fringe Studios, Johannesburg, South Africa
It was engaging, it was quick. I found it to be very practical. And very comprehensive So that, that was excellent. Also to see how many industries it has been applied to. I think there’s a real a track record there which increases my confidence in all of this.We now have Outside-In dashboards. We see it’s quantifiable. It’s not what I call fufu shihi which is, all the other stuff. But it’s like, to the point and I can see it’s executive.
Nehal Shah, MD and co-founder, Fringe Studios, Johannesburg, South Africa
