Painful process

At yesterday's meeting with Sam McCable and Steve McGreasy we decided it was important to review the maintenance protocols in the three Cablinc factories. Today I got an email from McGreasy with a 42-page attachment: the current maintenance protocol. He sent it to me and 14 other people, including colleagues from the Portuguese and Slovak factories. He requested everyone to check if the protocols still make sense. He also asked everyone to contribute ideas on how to make the protocols clearer and more effective.

I imediately got a call from Sam McCable asking if I knew of a better way for us all to work together on the document. One more thing for me to investigate.

Enterprise social tools promote new and much improved ways of working. Attend Social Now Europe 2019 (Lisbon, Portugal - 6 & 7 June) to see how it can be done.
