A supervisor, a manager, or operations chairman can work effectively with the innate knowledge that he has of the entire process of the company and witnessing first-hand on how things work out inside it. It may be beneficial for a company to know that the people working on the top managerial positions are also familiar even with the manual processes that happen inside the company. A person who is never afraid of literally getting his hands dirty by participating in the actual manufacturing process can be said to be a very good manager. Sam Foti is able to display this kind of character in accordance with their hose manufacturing business.

NAHAD or The Association for Hose & Accessories Distribution which was created as an answer to the needs of standardizing hose manufacturing processes and practices has become a huge part of Sam Foti’s business success. He actively participated in every undertaking that this associate have done and as much as possible he held responsibilities in his own account. This goes to show that it is very essential to experience things in reality and not only in theory. It will help you better in weighing a deciding on things if you know first-hand what will be the effects of such a decision, what are its pros and cons, and how long will it become an established part of the whole business process.

Creating rules, bylaws, and guidelines will be more realistic if you are very familiar with every process and you have a personal account of how it feels to be doing these processes on a regular basis. With more realistic decisions, the response of the workforce will also be inclined to the positive end which allows the implementation of the new set of standards to be trouble-free.
