One-point lesson plans, Maslow's motivation, Trump tariffs, and more
Happy New Year one and all!
In case you missed it, our first 2017 episode of Quality Digest Live contained some great articles and discussion between myself and my co-host, Quality Digest editor in chief Dirk Dusharme. In the show, we covered:
LED lightbulbs are a benefit for consumers, but also create an economic hit for manufacturers such as GE.
This article from William Brum presented an effective and visual lean tool that helps people share basic information about a machine or procedure.
Old QD friend Paul Naysmith contributed this rebuke to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs as it is typically used in management settings.
Is the Ford Motor Company’s latest decision to commit to a plant expansion in Michigan instead of Mexico just about avoiding tariffs or something more?
“Speed Round: Dirk vs. Mike”
Further to the issue of tariffs, Dirk asked me whether or not the carrot-and-stick approach is the best way to encourage job growth in the United States. And oh, by the way… should we be talking politics on the show, anyway? Share your opinion!
