ECONOMY (CO-OPERATION) DRIVE
While I am waiting to be flooded with suggestions - and decisions - I took the opportunity to explain the "why" and "how" of the economy drive to the Works Committee - on 13th July.
A. Our profitability has been declining continuously for the past few years.
By increasing all-round productivity, of all resources and inputs.
"Productvity is a Many-Splendoured Thing"
Sales (from 7.7% in 84-85)
Stores crediting(at Sales (from 26.0% in 84-85
I have distributed some charts/data to members of the Works Committee. If he does not volunteer to share this information with you, go and ask him (during lunch-break-surely you do not wish to waste one minute of your "productive-time" !).
If you do not know who represents your department/section on the Works-Committee,, ask your Foreman/Supervisor.
In the meantime, I have already shown, to some 50/60 foremen/ supervisors, a film called,
"PEOPLE & PRODUCTIVITY: WE LEARN FROM THE JAPANESE".
I will be showing it to the rest within the next 4 weeks.
An in case you are willing to stay-back after working hours in order to see this film, just phone cynthia/Manju on extn. no. 497 and give your name, P.S. no., and cost-cent re/ department. As soon as I have received 20 names, I am willing to show this film to you personally and discuss with you what we can learn from the Japanese.
