Planning for 2015

Production / Training / Operations Concepts for the New Year – Terry
-Something special about a brand new year… time to assess, fix, change
-Sound business – positives steps, useful modifications
-This time of year, reassess professional goals and principles

10 basic concepts that dominate my approach to business

  1. Put trust in your employees (Trust your employees and allow them to do their jobs)
  2. Avoid playing good cop/bad cop (Owners and managers like to take the good cop role, Production floor supervisors and managers are relegated the bad cop role)
  3. Let employees hit the stop button (How many times has an employee said, “I knew that order was wrong…”)
  4. Find the best ideas within your company (You used to think, “If I were running this place…”)
  5. Provide training weekly (52/15)

Please tune in on December 12th, 2014 for the conclusion of the list and other planning details.
