HNA Morning Meeting

I’d like to show you our version of the morning meeting here at Hagemeyer. It has changed this site and is one of the driving forces in changing this company. I’m amazed at how much it has turned us around. I would also like to introduce you to Joseph Lines. Joseph was promoted to Lean Manager this year due to his outstanding performance with Lean and his ability to see the benefits when most of us were still struggling with this change for the company. He is the one responsible for introducing your 2 Second Lean system to our organization. I then took what he showed me with your success and introduced the morning meeting to our organization. In the last few months, Joseph and I have worked very closely to bring to our company what your mentoring has brought to us, which is that Lean is all about the people. Once we realized this, and now have shown the results of shifting to this Lean Culture and to this Growing People Culture, it is taking the company by storm. I think I speak for both of us when I say that we owe so much to you, and the lessons you have shown us. Joseph has created our own YouTube channel, Lean Your Machine – HNA, where we are starting to post our own videos, as well as links to others. It’s in its infancy stages, but we couldn’t agree with you more that making videos is a very powerful tool in showing Lean. Please take a look and let us know what you think. We look forward to hearing from you!

Lean Gap Handle

Thomas Riner, of Fancy Hill Farms, sent us this video and said. “I also wanted you to know that you have inspired me to start a YouTube channel called Farming Outside The Box. It is a channel for documenting farming innovation, lean on the farm, and old school farming. Its in the very early stages but I’m excited about it.”

Love that lean can be applied anywhere. Thanks Thomas! Keep up the great work. We’ll be checking your channel periodically for innovative videos!!!

Clay Dyer – Most Motivational Pro Bass Fisherman

We watched this during our morning meeting…

Clay Dyer was born with no legs, no left arm and only part of a right arm, yet he’s fishing the FLW professional bass tournaments and making a living doing it. Clay’s story is one that will shock and inspire you at the same time. In this video, Clay shows how he ties a lure on with no hands, how he is able to write and how he can even throw a football. You do not want to miss this. It is truly inspirational.
