3. People join good companies but quit bad managers
Greg L. Alston
I'm constantly amazed by how people who are charged with managing people try to make life much more complex and difficult than it needs to be. When people join a new company, they are usually excited by the new opportunities and believe in the vision of the organization. They choose the job based on the best fit with their world view.

7. Optimizing the pick area for shipping operations
IndustryWeek
Shipping and distribution are essential to any company's profitability. Efficiencies gained in these areas can reduce costs, speed products to market and increase customer satisfaction. Unfortunately, because shipping is often viewed as a nonvalue-added activity, the analysis of what happens (or doesn't happen) to select, pack and transport goods often gets short shrift during a company's lean improvement initiatives.
