    Question for Operations / Manufacturing Types

    Which guy do you want on your team?

    A - Individual can make 100 widgets in given time frame, while only giving 50% effort, resulting in more output, but also some bad behaviors.

    B - Individual can make 90 widgets in same time frame, while giving near 100% effort, resulting in less output, but great behaviors.

    Thoughts?

    I thought school was out for the year. More tests?

    I'll go with B. Bad behaviors can bleed over into bigger problems.

    100 x .5 = 50 good widgets per hour.
    90 x 1.0 = 90 good widgets per hour.

    B

    Behaviors are contagious and the primary source of improving a culture. Productivity can be improved with good behaviors, attitudes, training and standard work.

    Re: Question for Operations / Manufacturing Types

    You choose A and up their requirement to 200 widgets per time frame, and then fire B for improved efficiency.

    Does % of effort directly translate into % of good widgets?

    There is definitely a correlation.

    The guy working at 100% effort could be a moron and produce 10 good widgets though.

    I am saying that even while only working 50%, he can still make 100 widgets.

    Mtown thinks only 50 of those widgets will be any good.

    Unless the max effort guy stinks at the job. Then it's just mass production of trash.

    This whole question is too vague. What are bad behaviors? Is it just apparent that the person's underemployed? That's a management error for leaving that person in a spot that's beneath their ability.
    Or is it something that actually affects other people?


    To date, though, the people who had to give max effort had to do that because they were in over their head. That usually created more stress for them and more drama for the people around them as well as quality problems.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    It really depends on what those other behaviors are.
