When any management team has no product based skill nor any type of "employee value" philosophy their only alternative is to blame employees for what is wrong. The problem with that is the management team is causing those issues by the way they manage. Stone age management I call it.Their next good idea will be their first.They are frustrated because they have not the skill nor the desire to help others. That is really their main job. Assist the employees to perform at a higher level through change ,mentoring and followup.They think they get paid to sit in an office ,look at reports and assign blame. You could hire a monkey to just fire people. The beauty of this is those employees being fired from the floor are the same ones who helped make Dacor a great company in the past.Not having a connection with the very people who do the hard work creates a wall put up by managers who somehow got some power and do not know how to properly handle that perceived power,only abuse it. The lean manufacturing guy or the export guy,when they have fired all the people maybe then they can do what those hard working people have done throughout the years. On second thought someone will say "where was I all this time ?" That person is the only one who can bring back sanity to his company. He knows who he is.Of course all this is my personal opinion.
