Written by Dr. Frank Gryna, coauthor  (with Juran) of the first four editions of Juran’s Quality Control Handbook.
His most recent book, Work Overload-Redesign the Work, was published by ASQ Quality Press.
In this free e- book,  Dr. Gyrna posits that  much of work overload is due to the waste and the inherent ineffectiveness found in most every position. Gryna maintains that overload is a failure in the design of the work, not the worker.
ASQ is offering you this title as an e-book free of charge, just by registering here.
I was always a believer that we should look first at the system, not the employee, and both Drs’ Juran and Gryna have made that point effectively throughout their life work. If you want to get a look at job burnout through the lens of “lean” but through the experience of a respected quality veteran,  get this free ebook.

This is our 100th blog post!

100 Posts! Over 20,000 views. That's Speakingofprecision!

Since we went live last August, we’ve had over 20,000 page views of our material.
We’ve seen it translated into different languages courtesy of Google.
And we’ve started to see a few comments.
Which is what we wanted to create, an ongoing conversation about the things that are important to all of us as machining professionals, entrepreneurs, citizens, and caring professionals.
In order to celebrate our 100th blog post, we’re sharing with you a free ebook.
Its 86 easy to read pages to motivate, challenge, educate, and incite you.
My favorites (and probably yours) are pages 15,16, and 20.
Pages 21, 22, and 25 are pretty powerful stuff, too.
Which of these are your favorites? Which inspired you to “do?”
Happy 100th post!
Thanks for sharing your eyes. And your attention.
It continues to be our pleasure to keep-
