Description of Your Home Factory 001
A tool for processes comparison
Your home factory is a comparison of processes in a household and processes in business environments. It helps to find similarities and parallels between household and e.g.: a factory to be able to pick the best for each environment, to learn from processes in a company for home improvement but also to learn from processes in a household to have a good input for improvements in a business environment.
By doing this comparison, “Your home factory” will help to understand the needs for more efficient and effective management methodologies. Those methodologies are the outcome of the basic need to save resources in direct connection to Men, Machine, Material, etc. Implementing a "new" kind of methodology into an "old" environment or start doing changes in a given environment or structure can cause misunderstanding, fear, aversion, defensive postures.
Why people have aversions to support. Sometimes people have the fear to loose there jobs because we think that increasing the efficiency of "something" will be :
- in a direct conflict to our own performance,
- used to measure our performance,
- used to create competition between colleagues
- we have the doubts, whether we can or we can not handle those new tasks, requested by our superiors.
Often, people do not believe that changes are made to make the job easier, more safety, more efficient by avoiding user mistakes or accidents. If we can not figure out why those "new things" have to be done and how it has to be done, we hardly will agree to a change, also because we know "never change a winning team".
But, are we a winning team?
A production environment or a factory and our home, actually those environments have much more in common than we think. Let us do a simple comparison and find out if it is possible to understand management structures and methodologies in a very basic way by comparing processes at home with processes we meet in our working environment.
