Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door. The challenge lies in the execution: choosing the correct mousetrap, knowing how to build it better, and then following through on every action right down to the packaging.
Closeouts, Project Controls, Procurement, Scheduling, and more
Almost every internal process that needs improving (and there’s room for improvement in all of them), has a bottleneck lurking somewhere underneath the surface that determines the speed and efficiency of the entire system. Uncovering that constraint and solving for it in a way that does not create further bottlenecks can lower costs and improve productivity. Implementing a system that exposes those constraints routinely creates a culture of effectiveness.
Whether they are willing to admit it or not, every business is in the marketing business. You’re not going to sell many mousetraps until you tell the world you just built a better one. Too many businesses wait until they need more revenue to think about marketing. This is like waiting until you’re on empty and stuck on the side of the road to put gas in your tank. Instead, marketing must be approached systematically with a full and complete program that is constantly measured, scrutinized, and adjusted.
Keeping your workforce safe goes well beyond a well-written policy. The true measure of a Safety Program takes place out in the field, on the factory floor, or in the warehouse. Is the concept that’s written in the office actually implemented in the field? And what does a company do when it isn’t? In addition to these concerns, a methodology must be in place to ensure the Safety Program is constantly reviewed and updated for true effectiveness.
For companies operating in the construction industry, EMR Management is a key factor in contractual compliance as well as controlling insurance costs. Having a robust and well-executed safety program remains the most important factor in EMR Management, but the work doesn’t stop there. There are multiple strategies and practices businesses can implement that compliment the foundation built by the safety program.
