Do the lessons passed down to us by history, lessons whose origins may lie hundreds, even thousands of years in the past, still have value for us today? Is Santayana's oft-repeated saying, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it," merely a way to offer lip service to history as a teacher-or can we indeed learn from it? And if we can, what is it that we should be learning?

Engaging, well written, and delivered. I would like to see a followup with more concrete and specific examples of how things are working. Particularly how to increase flow for the human part of the network involved in delivering value to customers. As well, when implementation environments are complex and diverse, how is flow optimized?
