HOTBEDS OF WASTE: WHERE WE LOSE MAJOR MONEY WITHOUT NOTICING

Many companies I have encountered search for ways to save "in the spotlight", meaning areas where it is easy to see and to attribute to a particular focal point in pricing – for example, purchasing, defective product, work costs or logistics.

Coping with Dilemmas – Costs and Benefits

When the dilemma is personal, I recommend making your own decision in all cases. Remember that everyone, including those close to you, has personal agendas and interests in your decision. However objective the person you choose to advise you may be, they will be influenced by their own attitudes and perceptions of the matter. When the decision is an organizational one, the situation is different, and I'll expand on this later.

A CEO who is both a leader and a mentor - are there CEO's like this? Can one attain those qualities?

Many CEO's have attained their management positions without any training or preparation. Almost all the direct managers of employees that I have met (work managers, department managers, line managers, etc.) were promoted to their positions because they were good employees.

What is the pareto principle anf how can it assist us?

"Ministry of Commerce: 20% of Israelis Pay 85% of our Revenue Tax" (article in The Marker, February 8, 2017).This distribution illustrates the principle known as the Pareto Principle, or the 80-20 rule. This principle was developed by Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto (1848-1923), who claimed that in many situations, 80% of the results or effects stem from 20% of the active factors or causes.
