(a.k.a. The Law of Management, The Law of Systems)
Diligence, discipline, tracking, and focus are required to optimally operate any machine, system, or business.
Great systems, great procedures, and great operation manuals are required to achieve great productivity and great quality.
Constant monitoring and frequent adjustments and course corrections are necessary to keep things running smoothly.
Without competent management, things will naturally go off course, off track, and out of tolerance.
Without competent management, some tasks are likely to be completed late, with poor quality, or not at all.
The greater number of components in the system, the greater the likelihood is that something will go wrong.
