WWII Propaganda Posters for Employee Ideas

Browse Posters – George Marshall Foundation

I love old WWII Posters, particularly the production posters aimed at helping the war effort. As much as Dr. Deming said to not rely on signs, posters, and slogans, I just find these signs interesting.

    Those are awesome. Thanks Mark.

    If we could indeed get just one suggestion per employee per year, wouldn’t that be great? World class companies get at least one suggestion per employee per month, if not more.

    American industry (and healthcare) still really lag behind this benchmark, I’m afraid.
