How to Create a Daily Management System

Do your frontline employees know if they’re winning or losing each day?

The answer to that question is simple, but not easy.
Michael Muilenburg spent 35+ years at 3M building a high performance operational technology strategy and team. He solved this problem by using daily management huddles to demonstrate that improvement was a daily activity. 

In this episode, we learn from his experiences traveling around the country doing work on site and some of the world’s largest and most successful manufacturers. Michael’s stories remind us that any system for continuous improvement requires the culture of your workforce to be aligned with the right goals.
