Shocking "truth" in the morning

What implication might that have? 
What on GDR maps was "white" back in the days is now 
the other way round. It seems that the concept of lean and 
making things easy is not popular in Eastern Germany.

Is it true what we see?

Due to the the constraints during the GDR times people very
much have understood to create value with what they have.
Meaning that lean thinking is essentially embedded in the "DNA"
of workers, researchers, and people in the Mecklenburg, Sachsen,
Sachsen-Anhalt, Thüringen, Brandenburg.

What is your personal experience?

PS.: The publication "Der Neuerer" ran till 1990 and with it ended
the "lean spirit" in the GDR. More about the background here. [Both
