How to improve productivity by removing waste from processes

Lets talk about the 8 Waste otherwise known as D.O.W.N.T.I.M.E a Lean Six Sigma Concept.
This gets our processes work better,faster,efficiently,effectively and more profitable with reduction in cycle time thereby
improving O.T.D {On Time Delivery} of services.

Benefits of D.O.W.N.T.I.M.E
Less Waste
Fewer Workstations
Quicker change of tools etc
Reduced downtime
Better control over quality
Reduced Labor
More efficient use of machinery
Work-in-process inventory reduced
Increased capacity
Increased production flexibility

Application of Downtime
Lets take it home to Nigeria.
In the 70's,80's and 90's the process of writing J.A.M.B has been improved.
Students buy the JAMB form via the Banks,fill form,post it and wait for the 2-3 months to get your posting for your exam center.
Then you go there,write your exams as a P.B.T{Paper Based Test} on a particular scheduled date nation wide,
JAMB gets a team to mark your exam then you wait for 1-2months
to get a release of your results.
In recent times, you buy your JAMB Form online with a scratch card and write your exams as C.B.T{Computer Based Test} also results are now
provided immediately after your test and the test dates are scheduled for different people.
Cycle Time is reduced,waste of waiting,defects,motion ,transportation etc.

Implementing Lean Six Sigma is very beneficial with the current economic times that we are in. It will not only save money,it makes work easy for everyone thereby boosting employee morale and the Customer's satisfaction will be raised.

April 2016 Newsletter

What is the most important skill you need?

If you want to be successful, you’ll need many specialized business skills, but probably the most important one will surprise you: it's the capacity to READ! Yes, READ!

You must develop the capacity to read, and to read FAST, and by this I don't mean basic literacy. This is why I talk of "capacity." If you’re on this platform, you’re someone who has more than basic literacy skills. You are the next generation of leaders.

I'm sure you’ve heard the expression: "(Great) leaders are readers."

You must have the capacity to read a lot, if you want to be successful. All the greatest leaders I’ve ever met, from any walk of life, had this in common: they liked to read books, journals, and articles.

You must BUY and own books. It must be a constant investment. You’re not a reader if you prefer only to borrow books. It means you're not committed. If you have children, take them to bookshops. Buy or build them bookshelves. Encourage them to own and treasure books. Take them to libraries, galleries and museums… they're generally free!

__For the African continent to grow and prosper, we must build a greater culture of reading in our young generations! There’s not a moment to waste.

Reading is by far and away the thing I do most in my day.
I hate rituals, but if you must have a ritual, this is it: Read every day to understand, reflect upon and follow what’s going on around you that affects you. Remember what I’ve said before: things happening far across the world can seriously affect you, too!

You can train yourself to expand your reading capacity quickly and easily:
1. Buy and read books.
2. Buy and read books.
Did I repeat myself?
Buy and read books!

In closing, the other day I went to see a play in New York about Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s founding fathers. It was a remarkable musical production and worth all the rave reviews it’s getting. I only had one problem: it was a musical performed in "rap" by a mostly young African-American cast; for a long time, I didn’t understand a thing they were saying! But I could still follow the story very well, because I’d read the book on which it was based more than 10 years earlier. If I must see a movie, I need to read the book as well.

Someone who has a smartphone or tablet is reading (quantitatively) more than 100x what their peers read 20 years ago. Nevertheless, the key to reading capacity requires an interest in reading books, even those in electronic format.

Be smart, be wise; buy and read books. If you’re planning to get to the top, one book a week should be your minimum target.
