Greetings!

Coming up with reasons not to change is typically easier than making changes, so many businesses go this route. While some excuses are interesting at first glance, the end result in most cases is an inefficient process that hinders business performance.

Complacency also has an impact on our ability to compete globally. While We Are Sleeping reminds us that we only have ourselves to hold accountable for our successes and failures. Very controllable factors such as education, process, technology, and motivation are keys to which outcome will be yours.

"If you can't beat 'em, join them" is the approach some companies will take when faced with globalization. India is a hot pick for manufacturers exercising this approach, utilizing the location for new plants as well as an export destination.

Outsourcing is not necessarily the best answer, however. Shops have many opportunities to look inside and improve, and even simple steps such as implementing new software can drastically reduce errors and boost productivity.

We are interested in hearing about your success in improving productivity. Please send us an email if you have a story you can share.

Enjoy the issue,
