I read this interesting analogy the other day in the book Clinical 5S. Humans like to keep areas clean that they have personally invested time cleaning. On the same note a dirty area can spread to other areas. Consider what happens if you add a rotten orange into a basket of good oranges. In no time, the good oranges will turn rotten. Same concept applies to 5S and the workplace. Get rid of your rotten oranges and then maintain it to keep everything looking clean and orderly. If you allow dirt and chaos into one area it's bound to spread elsewhere in no time. Implement standards to keep the rotten oranges at bay. Good luck
