I find it amazing that people think it's a good idea to continually move the goalposts. Is there no such thing as an optimum state?
You don't move all
of the goalposts - you identify the processes that are generating the most wastage (define "wastage" in whatever units you want!) and try to improve on them. If you've reached your target and you're happy there, then move on.
The intent is that we should always be striving for improvement - not that we need to continually improve in *every* area, but that we need to be striving for improvement in the areas where improvement is required
. We as business managers are responsible for determining where the improvements are required.
