Every year, every decade, every generation, etc. experiences numerous transitions, transformations, inventions, theories, etc. It seems to take at least a decade or more to evaluate the value and impact of each of these. When the business world first began using more machines (the Industrial Age), it seemed to start everyone thinking that “anything” is possible. Unfortunately, inventors, scientists, engineers, etc. were not giving enough thought to consequences to these new machines or their processes.
In today’s world “technology” seems to be the new miracle — making anything possible. But again, there needs to be given more attention to what these creators are doing with all the new technologies. As students learn in a science classroom, there will always be some type of outcome or reaction when experimenting with the combining of two or more ingredients or materials. The same is true when changing the order or materials in a process.
In regards to business procedures, companies are examining how to make a process proceed more quickly or with better results. When changing or adjusting the technological process, it may be feasible to make small adjustments, making note of materials, amounts, and the period of time that was altered, and then marking the result. Creating a better outcome or procedure/product could reduce costs, time for process — thus become more productive, etc. Be sure to make note of each step and change/adjustment in order to determine the best process for the best results.
The changes you may accomplish could produce excellent, effective resolutions that could benefit hundreds, if not thousands. Each employee in an organization may create valuable and useful efforts or products that could help with pollution, illnesses, production challenges, etc. Even if not in the industrial portion of business, there are many needed resolutions for a multitude of challenges. Any of us can be a contributor in improving our world — even YOU!
