“My Life and Work” Written by Henry FOrd in 1922 and his words seem to have a very modern feel about them.
“We fortunately did not inherit any traditions and we are not founding any. If we have a tradition it is this:
Everything can always be done better than it is being done.”
“As I have said, everyone in the place reserves an open mind as to the way in which every job is being done. If there is any fixed theory – any fixed rule – it is that:
No job is being done well enough.
The whole factory management is always open to suggestion, and we have an informal suggestion system by which any workman can communicate any idea that comes to him and get action on it.”
