In order to raise awareness of the curiosity of where we are, where we are going, the management meeting that the senior management has organized, sometimes monthly, sometimes six months, no later than a year, depending on the company’s culture, or the management review meeting, as we call it, is the subject of this article. The importance of management review meetings is indisputable, but their efficiency is debatable.
A foreign visitor came to the factory. There is a Turkish translator with him. I don’t know who is he. I know only that he has a company. In such cases, the organizational disorder has occurred from time to time[…]
Depending on the product you produce, the sector you are in, and the customer base you are addressing, the length and shortness of the delivery time are important.
Especially those who manufacture for sectors such as automotive know well that the punctual delivery rate followed as KPI (Key process indicator) is recalculated and monitored in each shipment. It is a parameter that is calculated and sent to you by the main customer every 3 months at worst, and is queried if you fail to meet the targets (95% and above).
On-time delivery is important, but not so easy.
I have tried to briefly discuss some issues that prevent you from delivering on time with a fishbone below.
The boss’s son came to my my office where I was the general manager.
“Sir, something new?” he asked.

Of course, when the plan was mentioned, there was a timing schedule, goals, progress and responsibilities, and the plan was in a tabular form, but I took them out to publish here. I also removed some social and hierarchical issues and company specific issues that would reveal the company. In addition, some issues take place in two separate places. (I did that, no mistake)
Large companies continue to work with this supplier for a while, even if they are not satisfied with their supplier and find an alternative, but they gradually reduce the amount of work they give to this supplier, shifting them to the other supplier. They do not suddenly leave this supplier and switch to an alternative supplier. The reason is that the new supplier gains time to develop itself and the parent company understands that it will fully trust the new supplier. In the meantime, they do not say anything to the supplier they are not satisfied with so that this supplier does not act emotionally and stop working suddenly.
After a few months of hiring, it is time to increase wages. So it’s time to raise.
We talked to the boss about how much increase will be made since I am a top manager. What the boss said was the inflation rate and putting 5 points on it.
In other words, 10 percent inflation would be increased by 15 percent. It sounded reasonable, I did not object.

Entrepreneurship is a subject that ignites most people because it nurtures the spirit of adventure of human and contains dreams.
I will not generalize by saying that everyone wants to be entrepreneurs, but most people do.
Few people can overwhelm their fears and despair to find the courage to be an entrepreneur.
Last week I made a meeting with a company owner. He is owner of a metal casting company. I made a small tour in his workshop for about 10 minutes, and I shared my insights to him clearly. Surely, what[…]
