The Most Important Person at the Factory


A modular factory owner called a meeting of all the company’s employees and in the middle of it the lights went out. 


The owner said “Don’t panic.”  Management started blaming each other for the outage.  The engineering folks jumped on their iPads and began Googling for likely causes for the outage.

The sales people quietly slipped out of the room to make calls informing their builders that the company is not in trouble and really can pay their electric bill.  The factory workers used their smart phones to see if they had power at their homes.

The owner went over to the utility room and flipped the circuit breaker back on.

Now you know why owners are important for the success of your factory.
