This Focused Performance Weblog started life as a "business management blog" containing links and commentary related primarily to organizational effectiveness with a "Theory of Constraints" perspective, but is in the process of evolving towards primary content on interactive and mobile marketing. Think of it as about Focusing marketing messages for enhanced Performance. If you are on an archive page, current postings are found here.

• Why a Daily Start Up Meeting? -- Scroll down to the January 07 post in Joe Ely's Learning About Lean blog/journal to read something that sounds a heck of a lot like a buffer management meeting in the world of TOC. I think Joe's talking about production or operations workgroups, and a review of critical constraint resource buffer status would stand in for Joe's review of visual metrics for production, but similar activity feels appropriate in project environments as well. While weekly PM buffer management meetings tend to be more manager oriented and related to the health of the whole multi-project portfolio, I could see a similar daily startup session for individual projects, with the PM and key active resources as the players.
