Time Tips: Finding Hidden Time Tip #8

Examine a task you do, and look for ways to eliminate steps and to organize for speed. A company that cleans houses sells a book for $4.95, and it explains their method. Using their method, you clean your house in less than half the time you used to. And you clean it so well that you can cut your cleaning frequency to once a month.

All they did was look at the wasted steps (e.g., running for supplies rather than having all of them with you when you start the job) and eliminate them. You are capable of doing this, so put on your thinking cap!

Toyota uses this task analysis method relentlessly. Consequently, they have the highest productivity of any car manufacturer in the world, and they dominate the J.D. Powers quality survey year after year.



Do you want to radically improve how well people in your organization make use of the limited number of hours in each work day?
