【PDCA日記 Vol. 110「早く帰る人と思わせる」】
＜ Mr. PDCAのボンジュール英語「ムダ」=「waste」＞
My first job was in the finance field, but I spent the last 1 year as at Japanese bank due to a merger.
I felt several culture shocks, because employees at that bank were doing “voluntary overtime work” that I had never seen before.
Even so, I have been going home at 5 pm and nobody was complaining to me.
The important thing must be that "Remind others I go home early" and my method worked well although I quit this bank 1 year later :-).
The material to be introduced today “Leveraging Time Skills (Japanese only)” explains “successful principle with no risk / high return” and the following phrases were impressive.
“I was not working overtime since I was a new employee basically.
That was because I knew well that overtime work was meaningless, because I couldn't concentrate.
When I looked the seniors around me, it seemed that there was a lot of waste in the work those who were working until late.” (Unquote)
Let's function PDCA today!
