MITIGATING THE EFFECTS OF A TERRIBLE LANGUAGE
Right around the time my oldest child started bringing home spelling tests every week, I traveled from my home in the US to Prague for a series of meetings. There, I joined a team made up of citizens from seven different countries, each with their own native language. Luckily for me, (perhaps because of me, likely the only monolingual participant in the room), we chose English as the common language. It was during this trip that I fully realized, English is terrible.
PROGRESS WITHOUT PAIN IS A REASONABLE EXPECTATION
At a previous employer, my colleague in software product management had a mantra, “never apologize for making progress.” This simple axiom was applied whenever we, as a software vendor, had to impose upon the customer base to accept changes, sometimes painful, if the reasons were good.
VIEW DEVICES CONSTANTLY GATHER INFORMATION TO PERFORM ITS DUTIES
So opened the first class of my college career. Decades later, I still clearly remember Dr. Hemmer educating the freshmen in Communications 101 that we are always communicating, whether we are trying or not.
At LogistiVIEW, our augmented reality VIEW devices gather so much data to communicate, we run the risk of "TMI." In our world, you cannot, not gather data! In this post, we explore some valuable information to be gained just by virtue of what we do.
TECHNOLOGY IN THE WORKPLACE MUST RESPECT THESE CORE VALUES.
While many variations exist, three attributes recurred frequently enough such that I now consider them the central pillars of an effective hands-on workforce. As with any core principle, a company who values these attributes will measure, encourage, and continually strive to improve in these areas.
Simply put, they are: safety, accuracy and efficiency.
A significant aspect of the LogistiVIEW solution is enabling workforce excellence. The remainder of this post will examine each of these three pillars in more detail.
