Shape Your Habits for Success
The ability to form and sustain good habits is central to perpetuating continuous improvement in your in-plant. In a new blog by Jim Workman, VP for the Center for Technology and Research at the Printing Industries of America, he notes that good habits allow print operations to make small improvements on a daily basis.
He cites one company that developed a habit of routinely asking employees for improvement ideas. Soon it was implementing an average of 30 ideas per employee per year. The pace of improvement might have been invisible from the outside, but over several years the compounding effect of those improvements led the company to significant market share gains.
