With Dick Anderson unable to attend this morning, someone else had a chance to take the title Early Bird and of course, it was none other than Robert Sanberg.
President Kelsey Wolter called the meeting to order with a ring of the bell, a moment of silence. We’re still eagerly awaiting her first icebreaker joke as Madam President; can anyone help her?

This Week’s Craft Talk
Scott Wiyninger of Success Computer Consulting, a previous member of the Breakfast Club through POPP Communications, introduced his co-worker Bruce Lach who presented today’s Craft Talk.
Bruce gave an interesting presentation on the “Theory of Constraint” and how it affects the productivity and profitability of your business. With a few simple examples, he was able to convey how managing constraints could be applied to service-based businesses as well as traditional manufacturing businesses. Many members in the club had questions as this approach leads to excess capacity at some point which is contrary to business school thinking that focuses on maximizing the use of people, plants, and equipment to operate a lean team.
Success Computer Consulting practice what they preach. They have the staff and tools available within hours of your call to help you realize your constraint.
