"At first you read Sensei's readings and you realize many of the things that you had asked yourself. This way you understand how many of the concepts that you have learned before and never knew how to implement or develop are implemented in the factory and in the office. That is the value of experience.
Then, you try to make summaries and mind-maps about some concepts or tools, even some small training manuals to get an idea of how all these wonderful concepts that Sensei presents to you can be displayed. Thus, you come to deeply understand the Sensei Readings and are also able to shape or edit them.
Sometimes you make these little hankbooks, graphics or mind maps for yourself, because you don't have the opportunity to drive this knowledge in your work. Other times they have a direct application. It depends on your activity. In this way, the short term of your current job does not cloud your VISION in the long term. In this, it is also important to have previous experiences, because you know exactly where to apply what you are learning now and where you could go wrong.
Then you go deeper, maybe again, in books that you had not read or understood in depth before. In my case there were several, starting with the wonderful book: Introduction to Quality Control by Dr. Kaouru Ishikawa. Rereading this one after understanding Sensei's vision makes you really understand the value of these manuals and the visions presented there, it also makes you reconsider the perspectives that you thought were revolutionary, such as Lean-six-sigma, which do not really contribute anything new and they are very sketchy.
And finally EVERYTHING FITS ... This process leads you to finally be able to create your own readings, books, courses and to know how to explain those concepts to others, and finally to become a Sensei ".
This is how the SHU-HA-RI cycle is confirmed. A Sensei is able to break the acquired knowledge to create a new one in a continuous learning cycle.
Now as a Sensei I must do a reflection exercise to detail my philosophy for the next few years. This statement is the beginning of a Sensei's path"
