Multi-Skill Pay System Design and Implementation
Bob Gilbert, of whom I've written from time to time, is leading a workshop by that name at the University of North Texas Center for Work Teams annual conference on September 25, 2007. I first met Bob when he was the plant manager at the Rohm & Haas Bayport plant, and I had organized a tour of plants with innovative work systems in the US Southwest for manufacturing management at my company. While I haven't heard this presentation, I'm confident it will offer much of value.
While you're there, check out cellist Benjamin Wolff's The Art of Teams: Lessons in Self-Direction from the World of the Arts. I'm not familiar with his work, but I like the idea of linking art and business.
