Over the past 16 years I have had the honor and the pleasure to work for some of the greatest companies in the world: Medion, Paypal, Microsoft, Office Depot and Envigo RMS, to name some of them. Although all of them were great places to be, there were huge differences but also huge similarites that one wouldn't expect.
Naturally the people, the talent pool, was often very different. But at all of these places I met great, inspiring and motivated leaders, that wanted to drive the business forward, and also status quo defending pencillickers that were only protecting their own behind to sit out the next crisis.
Process and systemwise it was pretty much the same thing. Some processes were totally lean, nothing in them did not add value for the customer, while others relied on controls on controls and as much sharing of ownership as was humanly possible... Kafka-esk was a word I regularly used to describe these situations.
With elMetis I want to change this. I want to provide you with beautifull, lean processes that do have control through measurement in them, but do not rely on 7 different autographs to get something done for the customer. Clean processes lead to more time for staff, more room for development and this way they help you unlock your full potential.
