ARE UNIONS ANTI-LEAN? by David Paino

Unions are certainly under some fire in today’s current business, social & political scene. I’m not joining in on any bashing or political debate on this subject; but I have seen problems arise between labor and management when a company adopts lean as a strategy. I believe there are lessons to be learned to understand some critical concepts for…See More

From JUST-DO-IT to JUST-DONE-IT

I have been working with two multinational companies recently and the need for  “just-do-it” daily improvements came up. The companies are very different but the team members in both companies got excited about just-do-it and took action on some similar things. They saw the importance of simple daily improvements.
