Bryan Lund is hosting the Management Improvement Carnival #117 on the Training Within Industry blog, highlights include:
- Mark Hamel at Gembatales warns us against the danger of serving two masters…I love the caricatures that he develops for the reader – spot on!
- A great take on muda, muri and mura by David Kasprzak at My Flexible Pencil. The way David applies the 3Ms to cultural behaviors is clever and thought provoking. Although seemingly “intangible” at first, the cultural wastes that David describes here soon emerge as the first logical target for attack, thereby allowing individuals in the organization to focus on building the ideal relationships so desperately needed to perform at the highest potential.
- Kevin makes the case for single piece shopping at Evolving Excellence, but not everyone is biting in the comments section…me, I’m on the fence on this. JIT for purchasing makes sense for many, many things but probably shouldn’t be applied blindly to all purchases…
