SOME THOUGHTS ON AMERICAN PRODUCTIVITY
Joseph Scanlon in 1932 saved a steel mill from going bankrupt with the theory that those closest to the process have worthwhile ideas on how to improve the process. Later he became associated with MIT on a bonus plan to let employees share in the rewards of more productive processes..
After WWII a Japanese man introduced a process improvement strategy based on specific “pull system strategies and tactics”…. The Toyota company used Japanese community spirit to get the support of employees for their strategy.. The Toyota Production System was successful enough for American companies to build versions they called World Class Manufacturing and Lean Enterprise Systems..
The American versions differed from the Japanese models.. Many American versions emphasized Scanlon’s concept of including employees in process management … Process management teams were started and accelerated by introducing exciting outside ideas. Exciting ideas focus employee attention on the process.. The productive outcomes were based on employee creativity and not solely on pull system tactics…. Employee motivation wasn’t community spirit, but rather the brighter future that employees could expect from acquiring process management skills
