Does this sound like you? Every day you're packaging product and moving it on pallets. Nothing has changed in your system for years, decades even. It works, but as the cycle repeats (and repeats, and repeats) you keep wondering if you're leaking profits.
We have all heard the definition of insanity, "doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." This is Bill Murray's character, Phil in the 1993 movie Groundhog Day. It takes Phil most of the movie to understand this.
Get Better Results
Companies spend a lot of money attempting to achieve different results. They implement new processes and hire consultants. Plenty of questions are asked, but then things stall.
You may have tried the "5S Organization" process for systematically eliminating waste and improving flow. Or maybe you considered the "5 Why's" strategy for problem solving and decision making. These are great tools, but are you asking the right questions to break the endless Groundhog Day loop?
