Even though the new quarter doesn't start until Wednesday, we are jumping into it with both feet. BTW - that is also the theme for July - Being Agile. Two quick reasons for this theme now. First is we are in new territory when it comes to the economy, social factors, government action and how it is affecting our ability to run a profitable business. The second is how it matches with our previous emphasis around building a "Lean Organization'. The difference is simple - Agile is a mindset that uses the principles of Lean to succeed in unstable times
Today's show is picking up on the out-of-the-box idea presented earlier today (A.037). The idea was simple - instead of investing in infrastructure during the early stages of growth as well as transforming the business to an Agile philosophy, focus on the use of time as your principle resource.
What if we matched sales forecasting and project management to build JIT (Just In Time) capacity and be able to meet any demand immediately - or close to it?
The goal for today's show is to explore how Agile Teams are a JIT resource, perhaps the only one available to a young business.
