The Mental, and Physical Walls preventing your Success

Enrique Mora

 

After more than fifty years in the industry and more than twenty in the implementation of Lean Manufacturing, I realize that the walls in many companies continue there, right in the middle of the action. 

Walls that separate:

·         Some departments, from others

·         Some hierarchies, from others

·         The hard-working class, from the administration

·         The engineering, from the reality  

In certain cases they are only imaginary (mental) walls, in others they are physical, real. As a result, the intelligence of the hard-working class renders little or any result, the good employees, the creative, spontaneous, intelligent and participative, leave and only those that cannot find something better stay. As a result of this, the companies that continue administering the old way have all the probabilities of losing participation in the market and many of them will likely disappear, without even realizing the causes. 

This is the time to make radical changes. It is the opportunity of facing the global competition with energy and intelligence, with the integral use of our most valuable resource: the human resource. 

There are some cultural barriers that it is necessary to eliminate if we want to reach the highest development levels and adopt the disciplines that can take us to a first competitive plateau in the current business world, just as the Asians did at the middle of the past Century.  It is the hierarchies’ barrier. That, no longer works. Today we all should share the responsibility and also the credit for the achievements.

The structure of the new company can no longer continue being pyramidal as in ancient history. Today the structure should be flat. This means a radical change in the concepts from authority towards authentic leadership. 

The Lean Manufacturing system is par excellence the method to change the results in a very positive way. By means of Kaizen Events, we can proceed to that indispensable transition. 

The TPMonLine Group is focusing the whole energy of the companies and their clients in the right direction, and demonstrations have been impressive.
