The Office Game
Bill Ritchie – President, Tempus Institute
The Office Game is designed to demonstrate the difference between the typical functional office arrangement and a Quick Response Office Cell (Q-ROC), by simulating the processing of orders for airplane interiors. In the first round, participants are organized in traditional departments. Teams are then formed for the second round. The participants learn how powerful the Q-ROC design is by experiencing the difference in processing the orders as a functional department compared to collaborative teams.
Bill Ritchie founded Tempus Institute in 2012 to help enterprises develop and implement an effective operations strategy. Primarily through Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) education, a certificate program and on-site mentoring and training. He has been certified by Dr. Rajan Suri to provide training in Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) and is actively involved with the Center for QRM at the University of Wisconsin.
