Your Education and Training Program
I have been helping companies design and deploy their Operational Excellence (“OpEx”) and Continuous Improvement (“CI”) programs for a very long time. Mind you, I was not born with this knowledge.

There is one aspect of designing and deploying a successful OpEx program to which I have devoted a considerable amount of energy; that of education and training. In this regard, I have had the good fortune of being exposed to the challenges facing organizations as well as being on the Advisory Board of Binghamton University‘s Systems Science and Industrial Engineering Department – balancing corporate needs with the rigors of academia.

Supporting Human Work – Digitally
Chances are, when we were growing up, our parents would express their being thankful for a “Guardian Angel” and keeping us safe from harm and generally looking out for our well-being. Certainly, some Guardian Angels seemed to have to work much harder than others.
Today, we rely far less on poltergeists, apparitions, and the spirit world. Instead, we trust in our training, our colleagues, our equipment, and how we collect, evaluate, and make decisions from all the sources of information at our disposal. The risks here are to be found in the gaps between the information and it being received in a timely and complete manner.

August 2019 Monthly Musing We are in the “Dog Days of Summer”, the period between early July and early September. The origin of the phrase is from the heliacal rising of Sirius, also known as the Dog Star in the constellation Canis Major (Large Dog). It’s the hottest period of the year (at least in…
October 2019 Monthly Musing This is a generalization, but the real reason why most engineers rarely make good business people is because they are fixated on the perfect. They are terrified of what they do not know or understand – and even more terrified to release to those who do. Their idea of too much…
