Founder’s Corner – Joseph Paris
I hear a lot about “culture change”, but what is culture? Why do we need to change it? What changes would need to be made? And how would we go about changing it?
Would we even know if we already had the kind of culture we needed, but we were the problem? How could we tell?
Perhaps culture change is like so many perpetual reorganizations which don’t have a specific end in mind. But if enough attempts are made, a configuration that works will be found; if only by accident.
As founder of the Operational Excellence Society, Joseph Paris has contributed well over 100 articles spanning a decade and across a wide range of business topics.

We live in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA) world. And the competitive advantage will go to the company that is ready to face the challenges; see further beyond the horizon, recognize opportunities and threats sooner, and be able to device and deploy decisive responses faster.

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.

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.

In it, we discuss the guest’s journey and lessons learned so that the listener might not have to pay as much tuition to the “University of Life” as we have.
In this conversation, we explore the personal and professional journey of Sanjeev Khot and the lessons he has learned from modest beginings in India to senior executive at Cummins.

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 Holidays are a time of giving. But what is more valuable; the giving of gifts of the giving of time. It took a move to Germany to rediscover why the holidays of years past felt so much more intimate.
Coming SOON!

We can’t say exactly what it is yet, but stay tuned and don’t touch that dial! We will be right back (hint, hint).
