For example, I once was given one day to complete annual inventory, which normally takes three days to complete. At first I did panic but after brainstorming I reached out to the plant managers and asked could I use some of their employees and of course they said yes. I was able to train them to work along side my team and we were able to complete the task before the auditors came.
