Exploding Seatbelts!

Hyundai is recalling 240,000 cars because the seatbelts might explode! 

They have a technology called "pretensioners" to automatically tighten seatbelts in case of an accident. It relies on "small explosive devices".

Get this: "...pretensioners supplied for the seatbelt retractor mechanisms may not perform the way Hyundai's safety engineers intended, and an uncontrolled explosion may release shrapnel into the cabin."  


Definitely not technical Strategic Simplicity®!

Today's Inflation is Another Reason to Practice Strategic Simplicity®

With today's inflation increasing their supply chain costs, companies are either eating the difference, raising prices, or reducing the amount supplied.

There is another option, rooted in Decision Simplicity, which is part of my Strategic Simplicity® framework.  By reducing the options and choices you offer customers, you can buy larger quantities from fewer suppliers, thus increasing your leverage for negotiating costs.
