Daily Routines—Not So Routine
"Philip," she said in a low voice, "I just had to talk to you. I'm so excited! Only a few weeks ago, I was on the verge of dismissing our production manager because he wasn't performing as I expected. Then, I implemented the Daily Routine System in our company two weeks ago, and I can't believe how well it's working!"
You see, before System100, Linda had constantly reminded the production manager each day that certain things needed to be completed, and she was frustrated that he couldn't seem to do them. When Linda had become our client, we had given her a Production Manager's Daily Routine Checklist that we had been developing for years. Linda simply tweaked it for her company. And it worked!
Linda continued in an excited whisper: "Philip, since Bob has been using the Daily Routine Checklist, he has not forgotten to do ANYTHING! Now, if I see something that needs to be done, I simply add it to his Daily Routine Checklist, and HE DOES IT!"
Sound simple-stupid? Too good to be true?
I've heard years of similar reports from other business owners, like Linda. It never gets old!
Did I mention? Great systems work!
