Trying to change the mind of those above you? Have an idea or suggestion and want to make sure you are heard?
Then you need to think like a decision maker!

All too often we fall into the “employee mindset,” where we’re frustrated by our lack of ability to make a difference and to affect change; we’re just there to fill a role and worry that at the end of the day we’re totally replaceable.  You don't have to fall into that trap!

While it’s important to make sure you know your job and do it well, if you want to excel in your career you need to look for chances to take it to the next level… you need to think like a decision maker.

The linear motion manufactufacturer was able to automate its inspection process using InspectionXpert.  “Even on a six- or seven-sheet drawing, with a couple of hundred dimensions, with InspectionXpert, at the most it would take us five minutes to create an inspection sheet,” says Mike McKee, a technician at Pacific Bearing Co. “Without the software, it would have taken a technician a day to create that same inspection sheet.”
