John Seddon's Ugly Jealousy on Display

In this newsletter from November 2003:

Seddon writes about a former client, Stephen Parry, who had "transformed" Fujitsu using Vanguard methods. Seddon shares a quote from something Parry wrote about not relying on lean tools.

Seddon ends his newsletter with:
"Here here. But it gets them in the Harvard Business Review."
Jealous much? Someone has his feelings hurt that HE wasn't in HBR (since he thinks he invented everything related to lean, or was taught it directly by Ohno). John Seddon is a naughty boy.
