South Africa, what an amazing country, we pay our staff for coming to work and not for actually working. If a person is 45 minutes late there is uproar and warnings, verbal or even written, are issued, but nobody monitors what he and his colleagues spend their time on during the day.


98% of companies are unwilling, unable or don't care to measure productivity and efficiency which directly leads to low Return On Investment (R.O.I.)

And I challenge any South African company to go up against the Japanese, Germans and South Koreans and beat them at their own game without being able to measure how long it takes to make, assemble, quality control and sell it for a decent profit. YEAH RIGHT.


Logic prevails that if you could measure your productivity and efficiency you have a starting point and can improve on it. Kaizen, (roughly translated) Same as yesterday only better today.





a Japanese business philosophy of continuous improvement of working practices, personal efficiency, etc.

Some projects stick out like a sore thumb when they lose money, other projects are dubious and don't know if they made a profit or not. The profit margins are too small to take risks.


The cost of labour is spiralling out of control.


Cheap v Quality you can't have both.


The cost of marketing is usually allocated to sales. The overall cost of the product fall into "apparent" cost and the "apparent" cost of labour.


Unknown factors:- What does it cost per hour to open your doors in the morning? 99.9% of companies don't know the answer to this. I don't know about you, but I find that scary.
