I have the honor of participating in this year’s Blog Carnival Annual Blog Roundup. The roundup is hosted by John Hunter at the Curious Cat Management Improvement blog.
Today’s blog, Squawk Point, is the first of three blogs I will review. The blog is hosted by James Lawther. James is a middle manager that has held many roles within operations.
James approached me earlier this year about his blog. I am glad he did because I hadn’t seen it before. James does a very nice job of making his points clearly and with some humor and great analogies.
The blog is split into three categories: Operations Analysis, Process Improvement and Employee Engagement.
Operations Analysis touches on subjects such as Statistical Process Control. One example is knowing when things have changed.
In Process Improvement, James takes on topics like Man vs. Machine. When is it alright to ask a machine to do something in place of a man or to ask a man to co something instead of a machine.
James tackles Employee Engagement issues. A great post was about how to measure employee performance.
If you haven’t read Squawk Point, I encourage you to give it a try.
