Demonstrations of Flexible Thinking during a Global Crisis (Issue 21.02)

Welcome to Volume 21, Number 2 of the FabTime Cycle Time Management Newsletter. It’s a changed world since we sent out the last issue in early February. Today, as we prepare to send this issue, the coronavirus is threatening millions of people across countries worldwide. Many people are hunkered down and working from home. Even when people are working in the office, companies are reducing the number of meetings and people are maintaining as much physical distance as they can.

This is all for a greater goal, of course, but it’s also important that we as an industry continue learning from and connecting with one another. We hope that in a small way this newsletter can help with that. In this issue we share community announcements (some regarding COVID-19 resources) as well as tips for using FabTime’s software remotely. We also have subscriber contributions and questions from colleagues around the world. Please consider responding. We are stronger together.

In our main article, we highlight examples from recent news stories that illustrate flexible thinking by companies and government agencies as they respond to COVID-19 shortages and shutdowns. As a company focused on performance improvement, we find these examples encouraging.
