'Gotong Royong' Is Key To Success In 5S
'Gotong Royong' is the key factor to attain success, no matter how big or how small an organization is.
An old Japanese proverb sums up the essence of effective 'Gotong Royong' - 'none of us is as smart as any of us'. In other words, multiple minds are better than a single mind. The key to effective 'Gotong Royong' lies in surrendering individual ego so that it gives way to facilitating the accomplishment of objectives and outcomes that are infinitely larger than individual goals. Individual aspiration will have to give way to the emergence of common ground.
