The Postal Service is Kaput

The postal service in my neighborhood is a hit-or-miss affair. And it started with a change in leadership. If you’re waiting on leadership to embrace quality, think again.



“I don’t know how the postal service is in your neighborhood, but some days it doesn’t come at all, some days we get mail on Sunday, sometimes the postal workers are not wearing a postal shirt and it’s like, “Who the hell’s walking up to my house to drop off the mail?”

“They recently changed the Postmaster General. He’s really proud that he’s cutting costs, but he’s killing his service.

Start People on the Right Path

Ever noticed that if you start someone on one path, they tend to stay on it even if it was only a starter path? How do you get people started in quality improvement and SPC?



“Hi, I’m Jay Arthur, author of “Lean Six Sigma Demystified” and QI Macros [software].

“Have you ever noticed that if you start somebody on one path they will stay on that path? If you start people on another path they’ll stay on that path, right? Because it cost them a certain amount of time and energy to learn how to be on that path.

Be Like the Ocean’s Waves

Ever watched the ocean? Waves just keep coming back again and again, rearranging the coastline. You can too!



“Hi, I’m Jay Arthur, author of “Lean Six Sigma For Hospitals” and the QI Macros [software].

“My wife and I like to go out to Maui to take vacations because it’s just restful, and we spend time on Ka’anapali Beach. We’ve been there different times of year, and it’s very interesting because at one point in time the waves move the sand southward and they pile up by Black Rock. Then other times of year it moves the sand along the beach to the north and a lot of things, rocks and things get exposed over by Black Rock.

If Leadership Isn’t Committed to Quality

If your leadership isn’t committed to Quality, you only have one choice and it will be great for your career.



“Hi, I’m Jay Arthur, author of “Lean Six Sigma Demystified”.

“I talk to people very often and they’re frustrated because their leadership team really isn’t committed to quality. What I want you to do is think about what do you do if your leadership team isn’t committed to quality?

“Simple answer: Start improving. Do it anyway, right? Maybe you’re just working inside of your department, you can’t work cross-functionally. Maybe you collect some data that says that somebody who supplies you with stuff is causing you problems.
