We recently passed the milestone of 400 posts, and thought it would be fun to share a few faves – a sort of Best o’ the Blog Log. So today we’ll highlight a few past posts that we thought stood out a bit, either in terms of popularity or purpose.
Post No. 2 was a very personal one, in which I attempted to recapture the early spirit of my foray into the brave new world of “micro-computing” some 30 years ago, with a fitting tribute to both the machine and the man that started it all for me. You’ll find that post here.
And then, on a much lighter note, for everyone who’s ever tried to manage — or worse, price — a technical project, we thought Dilbert summed it up best here.
We earn our living making manufacturing processes better. So of course we’re fans of The Goal Institute’s Eli Goldratt and friends with Donn Novotny (the real life role model for Alex Rogo in the The Goal)… thus it’s only fitting we posted a series beginning here on the Theory of Constraints.
Another personal one: Customers and friends know that an ill-fated decision 6 years ago to turn over my business (then known as “PMI”) to some less than trustworthy (or competent) former employees led to the biggest financial disaster of my life. I learned the hard way just how much integrity matters, and ave a brief synopsis of that story here.
Not long into blogging , I wrote a post about multi-tasking (I don’t much believe in it) and it “went viral” on WordPress. Which is to say, we got 2,500 hits and 100 comments in about 24 hours — our closest brush yet with fame. That post is here, and our reaction a bit later to Going Viral is here.
Our team has implemented warehouse management systems for many years, and we offer some tips in this series of posts on Getting Started in WMS.
Our main line of work is implementing ERP systems, so after 20+ years of doing it, we wrote an 11 part series short on fluff and long on real-world observations and lessons in Software That Matters. Frankly, we think you’ll like this edited White Paper version, in one convenient PDF format, better.
We’ll stop there for now, hoping you found a post or two of interest. We’ve got a few more worth noting, and we’ll cover those in the second half of this post, so stay tuned…
