Here at VIBCO we have a very special environment! All VIBCO employees really run their own small business and are empowered to improve their own day-to-day processes as long as they "side ways share" (yokoten) the improvements.
I will be sharing one of these once a week in light of our Lean journey and maybe YOU can eliminate some waste from your day!
