    All About RACI Charts in Minitab Workspace

    A staple in project management, RACI charts help team members understand their roles for project deliverables – breaking down in each step who is Responsible, Accountable, Consulted and Informed. When you articulate those four levels of input and decision-making ability and assign them to different team members at the start of a project, it can help everyone execute projects more smoothly.

        “What's measured improves.” So said famed management consultant and author, Peter Drucker. Assuming we are measuring the right things, how do standard units of measure affect our perceptions of improvement? Could you be operating in an environment of self-inflicted unevenness? Accelerating the cadence of problem-solving creates flow.

              While the intelligent use of mechanization in the 20th century absolutely extended human capability, a great deal of that mechanization also just created waste more efficiently. Now, as we enter the next decade of this century, the emergence of powerful new technologies, referred to collectively as IoT, the Internet of Things, promise even greater enhancement to human capability.

                  "They" is a red flag word. It’s frequency and location of use in conversation paint a picture of the business environment: favorable or unfavorable. Organizations with a stronger Lean culture will refer more frequently to “we” in describing their work.
