January 21, 2006
First: I have finished my LE assignment. Not having received Pauls feedback on my first work (PPE if someone forgot), I have been limited in terms of understanding of his expectations and requirements. It could extremely useful during completing this work. I suppose everyone EEE student can express some regrets about it. Anyway, the positive side is that two submitted PMW are only my job without any even tiny interference, so the results I will eventually receive will be only my results and will have no one to share either success or sadness (that is more likely, to be honest).
Second. In Warwick Library I suddenly found the book I have been looking for almost 15 years (since I was a first year student of Physics Department) The Tao of physics by Fritjof Capra. He says that almost all the concepts of modern (the book was published in 1975 but nothing serious happened since then) physics may be found in Eastern religious philosophies. Some parallels are quite interesting Anyone who wants to read is supposed to wait until I have finished it 10–15 days I hope, because I almost do not have spare time to read it. It is of interest that this gay was a physicists, but in 90s decided to focus on some business issues, among the others is organizational learning ..
Final. I started to realize something about 6S not much but enough to understand how powerful it can be. I seem the main concept is to divide all the activities of a company into processes and their interrelationships, choose some processes and apply to them different statistical tools in order to improve them. One thing is a bit mysterious for me why it is so important to maximize the formalities of it. I mean all this structure with various Belts people. To my mind all this staff can be used without any belts . You only need to explain to people some basic concepts of it and they, probably, will do it themselves Am I wrong?
P.S. An interesting link The BBC radio program whose one issue is closely connected with the subject we are studying. I think it is worth listening
