Are you too Busy to Improve?
Don’t we all know more get done if we stay busy? We feel good and efficient. We get a pat on the back or a nod of approval from the managers when pulling that all-nighter once again. It may feel good and we could even get a raise for being so efficient, but is this good for the company? Is it good for our customers?
What happens when the CPU in your computer is running at 100%, or in rush hour traffic? Everything slow down. If you want to innovate and improve, you must make time for continuous improvements.
In this talk, I will share a number of stories and practical building blocks to help you build a culture of continuous improvement.
To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often – Winston Churchill
