Field of Actions
Core Competencies / Skills
The strenght of a chain depends on its weakest element ...?
The world is far more complex than a chain, the weakest link in a network defines the strenght of the whole!
Complexity can only be controlled thru higher complexity (Prof. Malik). Complexity is not a contradiction to Lean! Please do not mix up complexity and complication. Complication is human but counterproductive and demotivating.
Standards versus Individuality?
Following Prof. Dr. Michael ten Hompel (Chair of Materials Handling and Warehousing at TU Dortmund University and managing director at Fraunhofer-Institute of Material Flow and Logistics IML) we can try do standardize services but never process chains and operational sequences. Processes are subject of continuous development; standardization would slowing developments. We shouldn't try to plan anything.

To lead employee, to manage things/objects!
There is no need to motivate employees, it is sufficent to avoid demotivation.
Clear / transparent (Process-) responsibility, understood assignment and the necessary qualification are essentiell.
"Who knows why, will sustain almost every how" Friedrich Nietzsche

The untoppable progress of digitization makes employee even more important in an enterprice network. Commitment / liability by clear and transparent rules; trust and increased willingness to perform by commitment.

Planning Process
Knowing is not enough, we must apply it,
willingness is not enoug, we must do it.
J.W. v. Goethe
Planning ≠ centrally command economy

Meeting a defined objective without planning could be pure case.

Whether in enterprice planning or equipment planning ... Planning should allways try to give an answer to the what-if question

"Do it right the first time ..."
(Management-Wisdom out of "Rentrop's Zitatensammlung")
Is there a need to use Japanese terms to talk about matter of courses?
No, not in our context. The tools are not the terms but the methods. And the methods are based on overview (perspective, interrelations), economy (do only what customers are prepared to pay for) consistent project management. Muda, Mura und Muri sound somehow mystical to our ears, but it is (should be) common sense that waste, inconsistenzy (e.g. in the network) and exaggeration/excessive demands are not economical. The holistic view (from the outsite) can help to explore accustomed inadequacies or hidden errors and help to find solutions with a benefit to the whole network.
If more value is leaving production as investet before
(Employee, Machine, Material, Time),
we have added value.
... the added value to a maximum

... when the customer returns with a non-product issue!
the best
the nicest

starts with selling products or services
ends after customer is paying the bill.

= when the delivery is what we sold (promised)!
= how we treat people (employee, customer, supplier)
Nothing more and nothing less.
A good product is no longer enough to be successfull in the market. The total package is important! The customer decides whether a performance is good or bad.

Quality is not only about the product or technology but
  • offers
  • order processing
  • services
  • delivery
and last but not least
  • complaints processing (unfortunately this cannot be avoided)
Quality Management System
Lead Auditor
ISO 9001:2015

We did not inherit the earth from our parents ...
..., we've just borrowed it from our children."
(Old indian wisdom)

That wisdom alone would be reason enough to take environmental matters seriously. Sustainability means not a one-time action but it is the basis of leading and management. As nature shows us, sustainability and economics is not a contradiction. Considering natures efficiency, it becomes clear that nature is also the most economic system.

... reliable control, ability, productivity are keys for economic availability.
... Seven-Rights-Definition by Plowman:

  • in the right amount
  • under the right conditions
  • to the right place
  • at the right time
  • for the right client
  • at the right price.

                    ... to make sure we're up-to-date also tomorrow.
                    Take a rest and competition will pass you. Innovation, no matter if it is in products, processes or services, has to ensure tomorrows customer benefits. Against this backdrop H. Ford was not wrong - '... they would have said faster horses' - usually we are imprisoned in the presence.
                    Innovation occurs only if provides sustainable benefits. Without sustainable benefits, we have only (expensive) changes. There is no competition between Innovation and Digitalization; Digitalization is a tool, a means to an end for Innovation. Horizontal, vertikal or disruptive Innovation? - This question should be answerd in your stategic plan.
                    Projekt Management
                    ... precision in development, realization and change management.
                    Project management is first and foremost leadership, methods, discipline, transparency and consistency. Never interrupt or stop the cycle Identification, Analysis, Planning, Realization and Assessment.
                    'We define all details in a stage where we know least about' this is as Thomas Witt from Infopark describes the disadvantages of the so called Waterfall-Method.
                    Agile Methods should ensure that project targets are allways up to date - the risk of moving targets is quite high - every day new findings, every day new targets ...
