Welcome to 2016! The new year is usually the time to set resolutions for the year. Here is a top 10 list of resolutions and how you can apply them to your business:
1- Lose Weight– Consider inventory as your business waist line. Is it bulging in the middle? Implementing a LEAN strategy will reduce lead time, cost and inventory and improve quality, productivity and floor space utilization.
2- Getting Organized– How are your business processes? When did you last review your manual or employee handbook? Complete your documentation now for OSHA, ISO and other mandated reporting.
3- Spend Less, Save More– Of course we want more money in the bank. Staying ahead of the competition is a requirement. Innovation Engineering is a system to increase speed by 6x and decrease rick by 30 to 80%.
4- Enjoy Life to the Fullest– Are you satisfied with the workplace culture? If not, determine the areas of improvement though a cultural assessment.
5- Staying Fit and Healthy– Is your technology at risk of viruses or hackers? A technology strategy is critical to an organization’s success to operate effectively and stay up to date on technology and trends.
6- Learn Something Exciting– Many organizations offer a variety of training events. MANTEC’s upcoming training includes LEAN programs and the Business Growth Conference. The conference will include robots (see #5)!
7- Quit Smoking– Ok, stretching a bit- what is your environmental impact? Systems exist to reduce your electricity and gas consumption, not to mention LEAN can reduce your waste.
8- Help Others in Their Dreams– Dreams can range from pay increase, more responsibility, retirement or simply going home safely. Understand your employees motivation to achieve the highest performance.
9- Fall in Love– Are you in love with your customers? Do you need more love? Discuss ways to grow sales including a new website or lead generation.
10- Spend More Time with Family– If the business is running well you can take those long vacations and be home for dinner!
