Focusing on What Matters Most! by Renato Peres
Every company claims to be constantly improving their business or process, but not as many grasp the core idea of continuous improvement and live it daily. This is evident when one analyzes companies competing on the same market, providing quite the same products, yet having totally different results. Improvement is often misunderstood as doing things differently, which is a huge mistake. Taiichi Ohno was known as the father of the Toyota Production System, helping Toyota to become the best automaker in the world. In the ‘80s, another engineer and scientist working at Motorola, Bill Smith, had just started a revolutionary culture change at his company. At that time, Motorola was struggling to compete against its rivals, which delivered better products with lower prices. A simple tool wouldn’t help them to succeed. They needed a change intheir business strategy.
