In Summary- What Is Takt Time

It wouldn’t be farfetched to say that Lean management owes a great deal of its success in pulling new work in progress instead of pushing it. This allows you to create and deliver value to your customers only when there is a demand. However, managing a pull system wouldn’t be possible without maintaining a continuous flow of work. This is not an easy task as demand is in a constant state of flux. In order to meet demand and run your process in the leanest and most efficient way, you need to define takt time for your work process. ...Read More

How can company strategy support or restrict your growth?

Situational Leadership.jpg

In Summary- Situational Leadership

Situational Leadership® is a common-sense, contingency-based leadership model that consists of four common leadership styles. Two points of clarification in that regard: 1. Unfortunately, “common sense” is anything but “common practice.” 2. “Contingency-based” basically means the correct answer to the question: a. “What is the best leadership style?” b. Answer: It depends! A Situational Leader employs one of four leadership styles that provide him or her with the highest probability of success in every situation they encounter. Those situations are a function of the task that needs to be performed, in conjunction with the task-related ability and willingness of the follower identified to perform it. Based on the objective assessment of those parameters, and with the responsibility of successfully and effectively influencing the follower, the leader responds to the situation with one of four leadership styles. Those styles are operationally defined by Task/Directive Behavior and Relationship/Supportive Behavior: • Task/Directive Behavior – the extent to which the leader tells the follower what to do, how to do it, where it needs to be done and when it needs to be completed ...Read More

In Summary- Evaluating the Cost of Quality

Every regulated organization understands the need to implement a quality system. In fact, it’s a “shall” clause for all life sciences companies to ensure they are in compliance with industry regulations. The focus of any effective quality system is, and rightly so, all about ensuring patient safety. From there, as the organization matures, its people, processes and technology evolve from a compliance, to a correction, to a prevention mindset, eventually resulting in increased quality brand recognition and shareholder value. Consider a scenario in which a manufacturer maximizes the capabilities of its quality system. If that company really “did it right the first time;” if every motion, thought, and investment -- from the product development, through market approval, and through manufacturing at all production sites and along the value chain -- were spent “right the first time” -- the outcome would be “right.” Right for the consumer/patient and for the manufacturer. In the real world, companies need to engage quality system processes, such corrective and preventive action (CAPA), as the lifeline to feed improvements through the change management processes into the product li ...Read More


Behavior-Based Safety (BBS)

Environment, health, and safety (EHS) managers are always looking for ways that they can mitigate risk, take preventive action against potential hazards and incidents, and improve their company’s overall safety culture. Behavior-based safety (BBS) is an effective tool that can be put to use in achieving all of these goals. Basically, BBS is a method of avoiding human error and improving workplace safety by observing and analyzing employees’ behavior while they work. Let’s take a look at some of the key concepts of BBS, along with actions EHS managers and professionals can take to put the concepts to beneficial use at their organizations. Before we get started, however, we must first emphasize one thing in order to dispel a common misconception about BBS: Behavior-based safety is NOT about blaming the employee for safety mishaps. It is about positively reinforcing safe behaviors while providing corrective feedback when risky behaviors are observed. ...Read More

Resignation- signs you should quit your job

We asked executives who have been through many career highs and lows how to know when it’s time to move on from a job. Many professionals examine their career in a harder, more critical way, prompting them to reconsider how they’re pacing. Most of the time, this includes determining whether they should stay loyal to their employer—or start the process of applying elsewhere or going freelance. Most Americans will spend far more time with their coworkers than their spouses, so remaining at a gig that doesn’t fulfill, challenge, or make you happy is not only a waste of time, but also energy and spirit. Instead of seeking the advice of career experts or coaches, many executives at leading companies have been through lots of professional ebbs and flows, so they recognize when it’s time to move on. Here, they explicitly note the hints you might be missing that it’s time to quit your job. ASAP. ...Read More

The Theory of Constraints (TOC)

The core concept of the Theory of Constraints is that every process has a single constraint and that total process throughput can only be improved when the constraint is improved.

in summary- Safely defrosting foods

Proper defrosting reduces your risk of food poisoning. Food poisoning occurs when you eat food that contains harmful bacteria. Meat, poultry, fish and seafood must reach a safe internal cooking temperature to kill bacteria in the meat. If food is not thawed properly, bacteria that may have been present on their surface before freezing can begin to multiply. If raw meat is partly frozen when you cook it, it can lead to uneven cooking. This means certain parts of the meat may not reach the safe internal cooking temperature required to kill the bacteria. When defrosting meat, poultry, fish and seafood, avoid cross-contamination by: *sanitizing your: -sink -dishes -utensils -surfaces *washing your hands Some people are more at risk for food poisoning than others, including: -seniors -pregnant women -children ages 5 and under -people with weakened immune systems ...Read More


JIT (Just in Time) Production System

Just in Time (JIT), as the name suggests, is a management philosophy that calls for the production of what the customer wants, when they want it, in the quantities requested, where they want it, without it being delayed in inventory. So instead of building large stocks of what you think the customer might want you only make exactly what the customer actually asks for when they ask for it. This allows you to concentrate your resources on only fulfilling what you are going to be paid for rather than building for stock. Within a Just in Time manufacturing system, each process will only produce what the next process in sequence is calling for. ...Read More

The 7 Fastest Ways to Fail an ISO Audit

"Good luck!" It's a common word of encouragement you'll hear from colleagues when they find out that you're facing an ISO audit.

In Summary- How to calculate a Sigma level

Business performance indicators have evolved over the last decades, not considering only the financial perspective because of the main reason in particular: to quantitatively reveal the effectiveness in achieving goals in the face of the improvement actions implemented. Through them, a company can scale the effective capacity of its actions and decisions, so that a current reference value is known before any improvement strategy is executed. It is on the basis of this initial control that the proposed and performed actions for the combat of waste and the increase of performance can be faithfully be evaluated, revealing clearly what the new index of improvement achieved. In this way, there can be evidence of the progress of an area, company or sector over time, where hasty decisions are revealed and effective actions are measured and analyzed. It is only by relying on benchmarks of performance that an organization can prove its success and increasingly stimulate its sustainability in the market.

Phage therapy for improving food safety and animal health

Phage therapy is an approach in which viruses (bacteriophages or phages) fight specific pathogenic bacteria while leaving beneficial bacteria, people, animals and plants unharmed. A phage fights a certain bacteria by specifically attaching itself to it and injecting its hereditary material into the bacteria cell. The bacterial cell is disabled as a result and will then start producing many completely new phages. Since the phages make holes in the cell wall from the inside out (lysis), this dies off. The phages that are then released re-attach themselves to a new prey and this cycle repeats itself. In addition to phage therapy, it is also possible to use the enzymes caused by this lysis for specific anti-bacterial activities. This is known as lysine therapy. ...Read More

Project Plan.jpg

In Summary- How to Create a Realistic Project Plan

The Project Management Institute’s 2020 Pulse of the Profession report reveals that 11.4 percent of business investment is wasted due to poor project performance. Today’s organizations must uncover the cause of these failures and determine what project management professionals can do to help overcome these challenges. “For decades, we’ve been trying to improve the rate of project success,” says Northeastern University assistant teaching professor Jacques Alexis. “Poor planning has been one of the consistent causes of failure. Often this means the project management team did not engage stakeholders in the planning and therefore didn’t understand the scope of the project. If you don’t understand the scope of the project, then the schedule and the budget will be unrealistic. There is ample evidence that planning is a critical success factor in project management.” Alexis is a scholar-practitioner with a unique combination of expertise in business economics, general management, portfolio, project, and operations management. He has nearly two decades of experience managing major programs and projects within the manufacturing and power generation industries. Based on his experien ...Read More

Quality Mistakes.jpg

Common Quality Mistakes That Lead To Project Failure

Quality management systems are commonly — and wrongly — viewed as a “necessary evil”. That is, your company’s top management feels a ISO QMS project won’t have an immediate and positive effect on the bottom line, but they’re going ahead with the project because “they’re making us do it!” This, along with many other Quality mistakes, are the reasons why such projects fail. When was the last time you had to manage a “critical” project without the support of top management in word and deed? If it’s happened once, it’s happened too often. Yet, this happens all the time with quality management systems (QMS). A customer may require its vendors (and maybe you’re one of them) to have an ISO 9001 certified QMS in place. Or, maybe you deal in a product or service that’s highly regulated, so you’re implementing a QMS only “because it’s the law.” Here are some more common Quality mistakes. ...Read More



In the Wall Street Journal Bestseller Book Open Source Leadership (2017, McGraw-Hill), Rajeev Peshawaria and the Iclif Leadership and Governance Centre make a convincing argument that the breakneck speed of the 21st Century requires a more autocratic style of leadership. An autocratic leadership style is characterized by the decision-making process, with choices being made by a single person. In contrast, a democratic style of leadership means members of the group take a more participative role in the decision-making process, often through consensus or majority. To be accurate, the book talks about leaders needing to become a ‘Positive Autocrat’ where there is a balance between compassion and mission. Specifically, a Positive Autocrat is clear and relentless on their leadership values and purpose, while retaining the empathy and humility about everything else. Supporting skill sets include listening and reflecting, forgiving more often, earning the right to be autocratic, and giving people freedom within a framework. While I agree wholeheartedly that this is the style of leadership that makes change happen, positive autocracy still contains the word ‘autocrat’. And, positiv ...Read More

In Summary- Kano Model

I will be the first to admit that I still have a few cases of 8-track tapes. For those too young to know what 8-track tapes are, please ask your parents. As a customer who purchased a lot of music, my needs were simple. I wanted clearer sound and something smaller to store. The music industry responded and introduced the cassette. The cassette was indeed smaller. It did not fade out and then back in with that annoying “click” that my 8-track tapes used to have. I was pleased with my cassette collection. Then suddenly, the music industry introduced something called a CD – a compact disc. The CD offered better clarity, more storage capacity and the ability to jump to specific songs, or shuffle the order of their play. Best of all, one never had to rewind! The point is simple. As a customer, my needs changed. In the move to CDs, I did not realize my needs had changed but the music industry, through research, keeping up with the competition and advances in technology, delighted me with new product offerings.
