The development of the process is key. • Too much complexity can also become an issue as well. • For Example: Lubber devised a strategy to use less money and complexity and in return the sales representatives had more time to gain new sales • However it eventually failed because it posed a threat to the sales team who was not consulted in the planning

Elco Experience Company produces elevators Because of changing market place, the company brought in consultants to help implement a new way of working called “Cellular Manufacturing.”
Elco Experience Elco first incorporated this new system at its Chester plant, and would then incorporate it into its High Park plant. At the Chester plant, the consultants and manager of the plant did not tell the employees what was happening or why, just that changes were occurring. Employees began to fear for their jobs and fight with other employees. Overall lack of communication from management led to the Chester plant experiencing a sharp decrease in production.
Elco Experience At the High Park plant, management and the consultants met with the employees and shared the thought process behind the new manufacturing plan. Employees were given the same information that management had, leading to employees feeling like they had full insight into what was happening By practicing the three principles of fair process in tandem, the High Park plant had major success with the new manufacturing process.
