Big Hairy Audacious Goals.

I talked about that in my first Blog five years ago on March 25, 2011.

Today I’ve been working on Ebsco’s FOD program in preparation for AS 9100 certification.  Our 5 S program is currently in high gear.  Nothing has changed.

Big Hairy Audacious Goals.

With everything that has changed, everything is the same.

I have always felt that a company can be in two states, growing or dying.  If a company is not growing and changing it is dying.  When a company reaches its peak, it’s time to reinvent itself and move forward.  At Ebsco we are committed to this.  With the global economy, the companies that survive are forced to continue their evolution and improvement to compete.

AS 9100 touches every aspect of Ebsco.  In our continuous improvement efforts over the past few years many of our ISO 9001 quality policies have evolved to the A 9100 level.  This is the natural evolution of Ebsco.  As I have stated before, none of this would be possible without the outstanding team we have.  Most companies improvement efforts fail due to employees resisting change.  Not the Ebsco group.  They take off with new ideas and leave management behind.  Their ability to embrace improvement ideas are the key to our successes.

So we move forward.  My days are definitely full but I get a great sense of accomplishment as we celebrate our victories.  I want to publicly say thank you to the Ebsco Team.

You are the best and make my job fun.

If you’ll excuse me, I need to define our FOD Control Areas.

Just Saying….
