“From Waldbaum’s to Hackensack- Worcester to Charleston; Legacies for Operational Safety”; I still find it surprising during my travels around the country lecturing and presenting programs on building construction, that when the audience was asked, “What do the Walbaum’s Fire and Hackensack fire share in common?”, the response typically were blank stares. The more seasoned and experienced veterans (translation; Older firefighters) when present, were able to convey some information on the subject. But yet, the true essence of the basic incident particulars and the lessons learned fail to be fully conveyed. We’re not remembering ... market research, surveys and trends
Commentary: Indicators with a Purpose - Meaningful Performance ...
Sarah Bowen and Sara Kreindler argue that indicators can be valuable, but are also often flawed. They suggest that performance indicators should at best serve as a flag for policy makers but should not drive decisions. We would argue that there is growing evidence of the positive impact of performance indicators. When performance indicators are selected based on sound strategies - and used as part of a clear performance management cycle that balances policy instruments (e.g., accountability agreements) and performance improvement processes (e.g., process redesign) - they can drive valuable performance improvements and help align ... market research, surveys and trends

Time Compression in the Supply Chain from POME by Gautam Koppala
This POME Chapter explores the ‘time compression’ approach to business process improvement in the supply chain. The concept and strategic relevance of this approach was first published in the West in the early 1990s, and it still offers good potential and a fresh approach to achieving competitiveness through re-engineering. The rate of adoption of time compression (TC) has been slow and this is partly because the approach requires the total commitment of the whole business from the top downwards. Coupled with this is the fact that change within any organization is always challenging, particularly when it involves ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
