Monthly Musing
“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest. The only thing that could spoil a day was people, and if you keep from making engagements, each day had no limits. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.
–Ernest Hemingway

Practicing Safe Computing
I recently landed at Newark Airport and when I turned my mobile phone on, it caught on fire; but not the kind with flames and sparks shooting out of it. Rather, one of my clients got infected by ransomware – and there was panic in the dozens of messaged I received.
I am Joseph Paris. If I were a super-hero, my super-power would be helping people become high-performing individuals as members of high-performing teams in high-performing organizations.
Organizations from around the world engage my companies and me outright to help them become more resilient and in a “state of readiness”.
In addition, I offer a variety of speaking engagements designed to deliver high-energy and high-impact in shorter duration.

These include; my signature and highly regarded workshop and masterclass, plenary and breakout sessions, keynotes, and conference facilitation roles such as panel moderator or chairperson.
Click the link below to receive a copy of my biography and the abstract of my “State of Readiness Masterclass & Workshop” as well as select plenary sessions.
My book, “State of Readiness” has been endorsed by senior leaders at some of the most respected and well-known companies in the world today. With Foreword by Andrew Lambert, FEIT; VP of Production and Supply Chain at SpaceX.

A Tale of Two Football Teams
Dr. Yan Song; The majority of people live by football science, that is, they have some hunches of what they want but do not feel in control of it at all and, if they are well adjusted, are quite happy go lucky. They have neither the interest nor the energy to take life seriously and apply rigorous scientific principles to scrutinize, understand and change how they live. There are some good reasons behind their pragmatic stand. Science continues to evolve and proves itself wrong, in time.

Make your vision stick
Dieter Jansen: At the core of high performance entities, be they people, teams, families or organizations, is a crystal clear picture of what the end goal is (vision), and an equally clear picture of what role every individual has in achieving that goal. Having a tangible measure or scoreboard helps to ensure that everybody knows where they currently are, what progress is being made and whether the goal is being achieved.

In this episode, we discuss digitalization and how it can add stability – even predictability – in supply chain operations.

They say that “up to 70% of Operational Excellence and Continuous improvement programs fail.”  
Don’t be one of them. Be the exception, not the rule.
“Fail to plan, plan to fail.” To help you, your program, and your company to be successful, XONITEK has created a Program Architecting Whitepaper where you will find the best practices for the planning stage of an OpEx/CI program.
If you follow our prescriptive approach, the roll-out of your program will almost be anti-climactic.
Even if you already have a program, you can use it as a benchmark to see how your efforts compare.

Get the Help You Need…
Sometimes we get caught because of an unplanned separation of an employee who was performing a key role in the company or project. Sometimes we have a short-term need for an experienced specialist to help push through a deliverable.
But time is the enemy. This is not a situation where you can take the time to recruit. The need is now, and help is available.
The OpEx Vault
The United States has the most costly healthcare in the world, but the results are abysmal when compared to its peers. How can that be? And what can be done about it?
The United States spends a magnitude more on healthcare – both per person and as a percent of GDP – yet has the lowest life expectancy of any other OECD member. Why is that?
