Continuously Improving "The Way We've Always Done It"

Posted by Brent McDade on 7/27/18 3:00 PM

My youngest daughter is in the 1st grade, and she recently did a biography report on Jane Goodall, the world-renowned primatologist expert. As part of the research I helped her with, I came across a primatology example that helps signify the benefits the a continuous improvement program. It highlights the mentality of “the way we’ve always done it” and is loosely based on research performed in the 1960s on a group of monkeys by G. R. Stephenson, though it’s more of a fictitious fable. The story is popular on the internet and was even featured in the 1990 movie ‘The Contender’ in which the actor Jeff Bridges illustrates this mentality.

Modest Beginnings, Building Work Ethic on the Keller Farm

Posted by Tom Keller on 3/2/18 2:17 PM

 

2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the incorporation of Thomas E. Keller Trucking. Tom's humble beginnings taught him the value of family, hard work, and building a legacy as told in his memoir, The Life and Legacy of Thomas E. Keller. 

Knox County, Indiana – just outside of a small town called Vincennes – is where the Keller family planted our roots. My parents owned a farm that spanned about 26 acres, complete with cows, livestock, and fields where we harvested cantaloupe, sweet potatoes, green bell peppers, and tomatoes. My father and I spent most of our days laboring on the farm. Dad had never grown melons before but knew of several farmers in the area doing it with success. He talked to those farmers and learned how to grow melons.
