Change Better. We support companies to structurally improve their business…

Our society at large is facing multiple challenges. Where to start. Nowhere better than your own roots. Our family roots are in Makkum Fryslan. According to skippers across Fryslan the most important side business of life is skutsjesilen. Based on this metafore, I will share best practices and lessons learned how to manoevre in production through open waters with sunshine and wind in choppy waters.  

Also in production safety first when in doubt everyone can and should raise the red flag. That said, lets go into production. 

  • It all starts with leading by example. A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way. As such, hand pick your mentor wisely.

  • Listen in training and on the job to the voice of the master.

  • Keep a close eye and see him do actual magic. 

  • Give it some time to sink in and ask questions to deepen your dialogue

  • Continuously improve the standard way of working. 

    • Every now and than a shift falls one or two operators short. The master comes over and says you can do this.

      • Some last instructions, wishing you good luck and have fun later.

      • A few minutes later I am sitting next to the best skipper in town running actual production. By far one of my best working days to date. 

      • Hats off to our local hero's the master and the skipper. In addition, shout out to our local team.
