Just as Just in Time could be either a very popular song or a production strategy designed to maximize business return on investment, Prof. Daniel Corsten could be either the most knowledgeable management professor around or the most enthusiastic person on earth doing what he loves to do, which happens to be singing for you. Knowledge and enthusiasm is certainly a powerful combination.
Don’t miss what he has to say about how we make decisions when we’re shopping, why supermarket shelves are organized the way they are, and why just in time is so important both in business and in life.
I haven’t ever discussed simplicity with Prof. Corsten, but I could just picture him writing a book called On Simplicity as one of the Fine Arts, in the same style as On Murder Considered as one of the Fine Arts by Thomas de Quincey. I say this because when you talk with Prof. Corsten you can almost hear a voice whispering “keep it simple, keep it simple”. What happens if you can keep it simple is that things start to go smoothly, as did my trip to Switzerland to shoot this video with him.
Just in Time
Just in time you’ve found me just in time
Before you came my time was running low
I was lost the losing dice were tossed
My bridges all were crossed nowhere to go
Now you hear now I know just where I’m going
No more doubt of fear I’ve found my way
For love came just in time
you’ve found me just in time
And changed my lonely nights that lucky day
Just in time…
