I love my new job except for the MUDA.  You say it like BUDDHA with a MMMM.  It is the stuff that corporations create for you to do that does not add value.  It is not meeting a client need or the corporation needs and yet it takes up our time.  Chris McGoff explains that when a big change is needed most people say they don’t have the time or the money but if they focus their attention on the change and away from the MUDA they can find the time to do the value added things that result in the implementation of the change.

What do you do that isn’t adding value or meeting a need in your business?

I think I will keep a MUDA journal for a couple of days and see what I can learn about the ACTIVITIES I am involved in on a daily basis.
