Best of luck to them trying the LEAN management style. The company I worked for tried doing that and it was nothing but a headache. Everytime there was an issue that could be resolved with a simple phone call, you'd have to put a flag out and then wait an hour for someone to come by and retrieve it and go through 30 people just to get something accomplished.
You'd have to have everything labeled from staplers to office equipment. If someone can't look at a stapler and know it's a stapler - they shouldn't be in the workforce!
You'd spend so many working hours figuring out steps of each process in the work environment and then map out strategies to fix it. Really this wasn't terrible and some good conversations came out of it, but in the end, it does no good. It is a waste of company time. And time is money.
Lean management is designed to allow more micro-managing and less independence of employees. Managers would be amazed at how well a work environment could function if they allow their employees to do their jobs without holding their hands through every task of the day. And if a manager feels they have to do that in order to get things accomplished, then they've hired the wrong people.
The more an employee is micro-managed. The more they won't care or take pride in their job. Here's hoping LEAN works better in this office environment than it did for a manufacturing environment.
I would say that there is a difference between "being down on the poor" and being diligent to eliminate welfare fraud and abuse.
If she wasn't drunk or texting, then why would her dad be at a school giving a lecture on the dangers of texting and drinking and driving?
Sounds like something he'd do only if he had some kind of life experience that included that. Like his daughter texting and drinking and driving...
