The Thinking Worker
(Surviving and Delivering Growth in the Era of Uncertainty)

The Thinking Worker is an advocacy, strategy, mindset, and work model:

  • At the firm level, it is meant to sustain business growth or survive any crisis;
  • At the national level, it is designed to attract investment in manufacturing and other sectors where labor cost is significant

There is nothing new in this concept and practice; its aim is to remind, revive, and go back to the basic principle of putting people first.

Some elements were part of the U.S. strategy in the 1990s to revive their manufacturing sector. Other elements were implemented by leading multi-national corporations and government organizations.

The Thinking Worker mindset believes that People are the greatest and most important resource of any organization. It is only people who can harmonize, utilize, and prioritize all other assets in the organization.

Creating a culture of excellence and continuous improvement is based on the circumstance that Workers plays a critical role in creating and sustaining change.

Workers have the inherent desire to contribute to the success of the organization. As Workers and the organization work towards a common goal, Workers see it in their best interests to help deliver business objectives. Given the right information, accountability, and authority to make decisions at their level of competence, Workers prove to be the organization's most coveted asset.

The Thinking Worker Framework:

  • workers own and improve the process
  • workers set their own goals and define measures
  • workers identify what resources are needed to accomplish the goals
  • workers execute, review performance, and identify gaps and corrective actions
