"30 minutes later than planned"

That was all it took for this Dad to look after his 4 year daughter's needs and to set himself up for the day.


Now I know that 30 mins late is a problem in lots of roles, but not in all roles.

I vividly remember working on a consultancy improvement project when I discovered 18 people had been standing around doing nothing for 2 hours.

Turned out the oven operator at their biscuit factory decided the union agreement meant he could choose to come in late if he wanted.

He couldn't but it was an education for me hearing the operator and the rep seek to justify it…

He was 3 hours late, the oven wasn't lit on time but the company were burning money.
