On Tuesday, 19 October, MWCC Director Jeff Fuchs presented at the Northeast Shingo Prize Conference. For an audience of about 250 people, Jeff presented on the topic of Lean for Personal Time Management. Many people followed up with questions and positive feedback.
Jeff described how he hit a time crunch in 2008, trying to balance the demands of exciting new consulting projects, a new baby daughter, and the responsibilities as Director of the MWCC.
“I hit the wall,” Jeff recalls, “because of the influx of new members, and especially the loss of state grant support, which demanded a new business plan and a lot of hard work.”
Jeff described how he developed new time management methods based on lean principles and tools.
“These are techniques that work for anybody struggling to get the most out of their time each day. It was very gratifying to get such strong positive feedback at the end of the presentation. I know the approach I described will help a lot of people juggle their busy lives and cope with the many demands they must meet each day.”
Jeff plans to develop his presentation into a webinar or workshop exclusively for MWCC members. Watch for it in 2011.
