Don't just blindly follow every hype
It's important to find out about best business practices and new business applications. However, an important pitfall is to immediately assume that a concept that has worked in one place, will work everywhere else in the same way. A good example is the Toyota's Just-in-Time manufacturing system. For a small to medium size manufacturing facility, or even a large one with unbalanced demand, the system that worked wonders in Toyota might cause total havoc. So, don't only learn about the systems, but also the underlying assumptions to ensure the tools you are using will help you move forward. Not really sure how to? Let Verbum Consulting help you.
