I was given a new job....I was to develop a new plant for DR. After much hard work I submitted the following for the new plant:
The General Manager would be a part time employee
I would hire a QA manager that thought people were not important
I would hire an HR manager with no skills
I would hire a Controller that chased women that worked in the plant and ignored his own family
I would hire a Mfg. Manager that had failed in the same assignment
I would purchase worn out machines and never do Preventive Main't
I would buy sub-par material from poor suppliers
I would hire a Improvement flavor of the month Manager that never implemented anything
I would ensure the people on the floor were treated like #$%$
I would staff the plant with whiners and back stabers
I would ensure that inventory control did not exist
Planning would be at a level that no product would ever be shipped on time
The production flow would be such that very little would be accomplished untill the last week of the Mo.
I would hire a goverment group that did nothing , but blame others for their mistaks
I would over staff Engineering
I would ensure a culture that made Customer requirements a joke
I would ensure that the majority of prints were in error
I would $crew over Supv's so bad that nobody in their right mind would take the job
I would have project managers that had no accountability for the project
I would have a review system that ensured good performers were shafted and poor performers that Kissed #$%$ were rewarded
I would ensure that the majority of meeting resulted in nothing being accomplished.
After I presented my plan I was told that while it was an excellent plan , that upon consideration a new plant would not be necessary since WLS already met the listed requirements I presented ...... Now it's back t the floor for me, but on the bright sside I can still make a lot of money working every Sunday doing nothing , because they have nothing for us to do.
