I feel like I was transported to an alternate universe this week. It's a universe where leaders don't think efficiency needs to happen at the cost of connection and humanness. It was a lean manufacturing conference for YPO - Young President's Organization. I loved hearing about how they run their companies.
Fastcap is just one of the superstar companies whose president attended the conference. His people spend their first hour at work every day simply fixing things. They sort, sweep and standardize. Now, that sounds pretty mechanical, but it's not, as you can see in the video below. If you think it's a bit goofy, I'm with you. I do, too. And I love it.
