Abstract objective

Abstract / Objective

With the help of Yogi Berra, we will discuss and

have a little fun with "I work hard or we work hard“

performing our jobs. How would most of us really

know if we are working hard. Perhaps more to the

point, how are we - the service recipient, customer,

employer, voter, sports enthusiast - to determine if

those words are merely words or if some

measurement of success does or should exist. And

if things evolve as planned, our Best Practices in Ops

Mgt discussion will include a segment "What would

Yogi Berra say?" 


I want to thank you for making this day necessary

"I want to thank you for making this day necessary."
