Because Waste Robs Businesses of Productivity

See the profit-killers below

OUTDATED ORGANIZATION CHART

A good organization chart straightens out the inconsistent and circuitous routes in the flow of authority and eliminates overlapping. It rids management of a common cause of dissension.

HIDDEN COSTS

Substantial waste remains hidden in many businesses because of the absence of accurate cost finding. Until management understands where costs are excessive, it has no adequate means of controlling them.

SYSTEMS THAT DON'T COMPUTE

Many small and mid-size companies aren't taking full advantage of computer technology. Computers that aren't the right size for the job, software that doesn't interface, and systems that always seem too slow are another source of hidden waste.

MISSING INCENTIVES

When adequate planning and controls are in place, top executives and managers should have an incentive plan. The opportunities for reducing waste are so great that an incentive plan should be on every top management agenda for increased profits

INCOMPLETE PROCEDURES MANUAL

Many problems, previously referred to top management, become a matter of routine when completely understood and properly controlled by subordinates.

WASTED EFFORTS

In many manufacturing and service organizations, an inefficient floor layout can add significantly to waste. From tool manufacturers to office workers, employees who have to reach further, walk greater distances, or lift more are wasting time and energy -- up to 30%.

HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF

Companies that "have always done it this way" often do not look critically at their own operations. Growing companies often add personnel without giving thought to eliminating work that's no longer necessary, moving nonproductive employees to productive positions, eliminating unnecessary routines, and consolidating jobs and departments.

"NOT ON MY WATCH"

One of the greatest problems with reducing waste is the attitude of management itself. Pointing out examples of inefficiency often has the same effect as challenging a business executive's  ability and integrity. An objective viewpoint is needed because a business cannot afford a shortsighted, thin-skinned executive who avoids responsibility for making needed changes.
