Tracking the interrupts

Perhaps the most powerful and least utilized visual management tool is the an-don. Toyota is a master of this philosophy - stop production so that production does not stop. Yet outside of Toyota, I have not seen this powerful tool used to its potential.

If you only have one meeting each day, make it an interrupt meeting. Initiate a 10 minute stand up meeting on the production floor at a specific time each day (I'd recommend 2 hours into the shift). Leaders from each line (or station depending on your process) get together with support personnel at this MANDATORY meeting. Use a baton (or microphone in noisy areas). The person with the baton is the only person allowed to speak. In rotation, each leader reports on ...

Why promote someone's product

Promoting someone else’s product, anonymously, with no face-to-face contact, no high pressure sales methods, and still earning a huge commission is mind-blowing to most people.

That's the power of affiliate marketing.

You don’t have to worry about customer support, taking orders, replying to emails, developing sales copy, or delivery of the product. You have no inventory and no storefront. You don't have to process credit cards or deal with bounced cheques. You’re free to promote any type of product in any niche market.

You make a referral that plants the seed. Then, sometimes moments, sometimes even months later - the customer buys the product. And once that sale is made, you get a commission. The best part is that the commission can be anywhere from 10% of the sales price to 200% of the price of the product you are promoting.
