I just read the wikipedia page on the 5S methodology, a Japanese workplace organisation method.
Some of the 5S elements resonate well with parts of the “5 stages of mastering workflow” in Getting Things Done. GTD essentially is about storing, organising, tracking and retrieving task-related information.
The words “creativity” and “innovation” weren’t used in the wikipedia article at all. So it does seem that the 5S methodology is particularly geared towards standardised production environments and doesn’t really cater for ambiguous knowledge work.
The Shitsuke step probably leaves most room for doing things differently.
