Oh, the pain

Oh, the pain

February 8, 2024 Off By Anne McLear

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.

Oh, my! I really need to do something fast about these collaboration practices! And possibly push for relevant and practical team work agreements.


Too many emails and long document revision cycles kill the joy and hinder productivity. Enterprise social platforms can help. Attend Social Now to see how it can be done.
