The Passing of a Giant

I bring you the last exhortation from Eliyahu M. Goldratt, guru to business, author, scientist and thinker.  

The knowledge exists right now to make the world a much better place.  As Sir Isaac Newton famously wrote “If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.”  Eli asks that we climb up on him and improve the world.  By: Henry Fitzhugh Camp, June 12, 2011

Raison d'être

IDEA exists to accelerate world prosperity. 

Investment in continuous improvement is supported in an environment of steady reliable growth.  One of the biggest impediments to steady reliable growth is recession.  Recessions are a leading cause of uncertainty.  Uncertainty is an obstacle to investment.  So, for IDEA to achieve its goal, recessions must be avoided.  By: Henry Fitzhugh Camp, March 24, 2011

When the Last should be First

Sometimes the lowest paid and least senior people in a company are the most important to its success.  How do we know when to treat them like kings and when to send them out to pick up our dry cleaning?  Actually, it is pretty easy.  By Henry Fitzhugh Camp, February 13, 2011

Fill Rate vs. Availability

At first glance these two seem to be the same thing.  After all, both are measurements about how well you support customers and yet, they are quite different.  By: Henry Fitzhugh Camp, December 24, 2010

Quit throwing away your investments

Too much investment in inventory is wasted.  And, most of it is unnecessary.  If you need to stock inventory to protect sales or productivity, make sure you are getting a return on that investment.  By: Henry Fithugh Camp, December 5, 2010
