On employee involvement...

From the Standard Register History
"During the war years, Work Simplification was developed by a group of engineers which involved a Job Improvement Formula. This formula was transferred from the factory to the office by Ben S. Graham, Sr. in 1944 and used as an organized approach to the improvement of a problem or system. Standard Register called it Paperwork Simplification and the company was recognized as the originator of the Paperwork Simplification program."Copyright ©1995-2002 Standard Register
At the time of his father's death, Dr. Ben S. Graham Jr. was studying Industrial Engineering at UCLA under the tutelage of Ralph Barnes in anticipation of joining his father in business. Dr. Graham was approached by Lillian Gilbreth who offered to help him to continue his father’s work. She served as a mentor and good friend to Graham for six years. It was her keen focus on the workers that convinced Graham to pursue a doctorate in behavioral science (he earned his doctorate at UCLA with distinction). Dr. Graham has been an ambassador for work simplification throughout his career. He has educated people in organizations across the US and Canada, in South America, Europe and Australia. His workshops teach people how to facilitate an improvement project and Graham Process Mapping Software (which he introduced in 1990) is used by organizations on five continents. Graham’s focus on people has earned him not only clients but friends around the world.
Dr. Graham currently serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Ben Graham Corporation in Tipp City, OH.
Ben B Graham joined his father in 1989, just prior to the launch of Graham Process Mapping Software. Now, twenty-five years later, with a few name changes and continual improvements based on feedback from the people who use it, Graham Process Mapping 8.0, is currently helping people in hundreds of organizations gain better understanding of their business processes.
Ben B. Graham is the current President and CEO of the Ben Graham Corporation.
