WORKING FOR INDUSTRIES AND
SERVICES FOR 10YEARS
I work as a product engineer in both electronic and mechanical engineering, plus I run my own company of design and product.
I've work in small structures and in multinationals. More the size of the company, more the number of meetings. As a Green Belt Six Sigma, I've been trained to look for efficiency both in my work and the work around me.
A couple of years ago, after a 3h meeting spent to listen people disucss about a color code I was not concerned about, I realized that meetings were a braking system for my efficiency at work.
I thus thought about "You know, we've just spent 2h together and we still did not took any decision..." and decided to say it otherwise : "You know, we've just spent 1253€ together and we still did not took any decision, do you really think that the color of this sticker will so much change the sales of the product so that it will pay back this money ?"
I spent some of my free time engineering the mechanical casing of the counter so that it can be plastic injected, and enginering the electronic board so that it's simple to assemble and reliable. The complexity of the product didn't really made the coding very complex.
PS: and from zero to production the entire product has never required any meetings. At all.
