One of the biggest production management challenges is maintaining control over the projects and orders flowing through the business.
Keeping all of the balls in the air (so to speak) is sometimes a difficult job.
But, if you can get a grip of the few things that matter this can become far easier.
I wrote a short guide about the factors that I see time and time again that make a difference to being in control.
The guide has some simple ideas to help you implement these factors, and you can download a copy without having to register / subscribe.
If you want to read it right now (it's a PDF file) then click here - production management report.
Even if you are not in manufacturing the ideas can help any business that has a 'production' element, although you may need to be a little more creative with how you apply the ideas!

Enjoy having more control over your business,
