The Worm : Unearthing Excellence
"In extremis" defines a grave or extreme circumstance. The condition exists when any business is at a point of no return and immediate actions are required to save it. This can result from poor management, poor quality products, inefficient processes, or any other circumstances where the overall company net income is flat or decreasing. "THE WORM-Unearthing Excellence" will investigate an "in extremis" condition and present common sense solutions to overcome it. The story involves a new plant manager who has inherited this situation and must make immediate decisions to increase plant safety, productivity, and quality, while decreasing production expenses as a percentage of sales. This book discusses simple, common sense management principles. The key concept used is the triad of people, lean, and quality. People are always the number one resource. Once you have given your workers a better place to work, where the product flows smoothly and efficiently, you can pay more attention to increasing the worker's sense of quality. When successfully implemented, the triad can help any plant focus on the bottom line-making money.
