The contagion starts with the initial LS workshop where participants invariably have a lot of fun experiencing the various microstructures. This has been the case in all countries and settings regardless of the differences in culture. Long rounds of applause are a frequent occurrence at the end of the workshops.

Since the workshop uses current challenges from the participants as case material for the sessions, productive results are generated as LS are being introduced for the first time. The “fun” continues at work where using LS is neither complicated nor a lengthy time-consuming process. Newcomers learn from being included in a work experience and get attracted by the same elements of fun and surprising results. Because LS are effective for addressing everyday as well as complex problems, they attract attention and broad participation.
