Today I am in Steamboat Springs attending the SAS analyst conference on emerging analytics. The tree boughs are heavy with the evening snow, and the view from my window is pristine. During the day, I am expecting to hear about new advancements in the insurance, finance and hospitality industries. My mind will swirl thinking of possibilities for manufacturing, but the reality is that the manufacturing segment is behind. They lag in understanding, providing funding, and building organizational cap
Let´s bring back manufacturing to our countries based in the huge hidden costs of long lead times and the maximization of ROI that fast response to market allows: less stock outs (higher sales) with a real fraction of inventories (less investment and ownership costs).
I frequently talk to groups of managers on the nature of systems thinking and its radical implications to management. In doing so I use several case studies involving prominent American corporations. At the end of the presentation I am almost alwaysasked, "If this way of thinking is as good as you say it is, why don't more organizations use it?" It is easy to reply by saying that organizations naturally resist change. This of course is a tautology. I once asked a vice president of marketing why consumers used his product. He answered, "Because they like it." I then asked him how he knew this. He answered, "Because the use it." Our answer to the question about failure of organizations to adopt systems thinking is seldom any better then this. There be many reasons why any particular organization fails to adopt systems thinking but I believe there are two that are the most important, one general and one specific. By a general reason I mean one that is responsible for organizations failing to adopt any transforming idea, let alone systems thinking. By a specific reason I mean one responsible for the failure to adopt systems thinking in particular.
So many times we get together to solve a problem and nothing is accomplished—it’s frustrating. Sadly, many approaches to solving business challenges are misaligned for various reasons—pick your poison. Innovative, business changing ideas can be fleeting at times, but that’s the gist of what design thinking helps address.
