Paul Akers demonstrates how to “fix what bugs you” at FastCap.
Dear FastCap Team:
It is so important that we utilize common sense when making improvements if we don’t we will look like everyone else. If you want to know commonsense looks like it is very simple:
– Spend every dollar and every second of time you work as if you were paying the bills. Other People’s money has no value, but when it’s yours it changes everything!!!
– when I flew to Mercedes-Benz to speak to them they offered to fly me in business class. It would’ve been about $8,000. I said no, I will fly economy I wouldn’t spend my money that way so I’m not going to spend yours any different than I would spend mine. When you spend other peoples money like it’s yours, then and only then do you truly understand what lean is all about.
Paul Akers discusses how he manages his email (up to 300 a day) using the lean technique of one piece flow.
Paul Akers discusses the nitty-gritty of lean at his house. A true confession for more 3S’ing (Sweep, Sort & Standardize) and quality.
Paul Akers show us his improvement for the day…creating a ski ramp for the hand dryer so the water and air moves out from the wall.
