“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the things you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

OpEx/CI Program Strategies
Operational Excellence Program Design and Deployment
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.

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.

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.

Podcasts
State of Readiness Podcast
This is a really great story. In a very real way, it is the story of America, the American Dream, and everything that is great, and can be great, about the American experience. I am sure you will find it as funny, enjoyable, and inspirational as I did. And I am certain you will end-up with a smile on your face and a bounce in your step.

Supercharged Supply Chain
We live in a VUCA world; one that is Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous. In this episode of SCSC, we discuss some of the challenges facing supply chains and as they operate in a VUCA world like at no other time in history.
Ron Leibman and Joseph Paris launched this new podcast in 2020, as well as a section of the eNewsletter dedicated to Supply Chains.
The Outliers Inn
In this evening at the Inn, Antlerboy and JP exchange confessions of having started other podcasts before welcoming our guests for some hot toddies on a cold winter’s evening.
Our guests include: Sam from Sweden who laments the lack of sunlight during winter, but shares with us his journey in re-inventing himself; Stephane from France who shares the contradictions of holiday shopping under COVID; and Mandalyn who sings a song for us.
The Outliers Inn is a place where all are welcome. It’s a place where we can be a lot less serious about ourselves, what we do, what our businesses do, and the manner in which they do it.

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.
