Problem Solving - A Question of Corporate Mentality and Culture

Problem solving is more than picking the right tool or technique. It is about accepting that sometimes things go wrong or do not turn out as intended. Nobody really wants problems and those of us who have tried to ignore them know that they only grow bigger the longer you leave them.

eft talk Supply Chain risk in a recent report for both enablers and shippers.

WBS talk through the importance of optimising your material flow.
Lean methodology likes numbers. 5S. 6 losses. 7 wastes - well 8 if you count loss of human potential, or 9 if you include customer complaints.
How would you classify the risk in your customers' supply chain over the last year?
63% of shippers have seen their risk stay the same, with only 23% seeing an increase. Enablers have seen their customers' supply chain risk increase over the last year, but some 30% also saw the risk stay the same.
But the most important question is, why has their risk increased? 77.8% of shippers suggest global economic instability. While 16.7% of shippers suggest global economic conditions have decreased their risk.
