Helping companies to become high-performance organizations
Operational Excellence By Design SM
“Do what you can, with what you got, from where you are.”
– Teddy Roosevelt
The Risks that go with Globalization
It is undoubtedly true that global extreme poverty has declined as capitalism has driven globalization – the trade between and among nations – to increase over time.
However, with globalization, as with any “new way”, comes risks. Some are easy to see, such as relying too much on a customer or vendor and having supply chains stretched beyond their capacity or capability to deliver. And some are less obvious.
Time is the enemy, and in these challenging times…
… are you and your organization Ready?
Thousands of people and companies from around the world have benefited from participating in my “ State of Readiness Masterclass and Workshop “ .
I am Joseph Paris; and I help companies become high-performance organizations by using operational excellence to be in a “ state of readiness “.
In addition to my masterclass and workshop, contact me if you need a dynamic and impactful speaker to deliver a keynote , or plenary/breakout session for your corporate event or conference. I am also an experienced event chairperson, panelist or panel moderator.

Operational Excellence Program Architecting Whitepaper
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 .
Even if you already have a program, you can use it as a benchmark to see how your efforts compare.
As has become the norm in these abnormal times, all conferences and summits have been postponed or cancelled through August 2020.
There are plans to resume in September, but nothing has been firm-planned yet. We will keep you posted.
The Benefits of Glocalization
“Glocalization” is a portmanteau , or blending, of “globalization” and “localization”. It is the idea of acting with global intent but with local adaptations; the notion of “think globally, but act locally.” The glocalization of your business will result in a standardization of the various processes and procedures under which your business operates – and they are applied to the local circumstance to the extent they can be.
You can’t become a high-performance organization without having the capacity and capability to deliver – and this is especially true when it comes to your most important assets – your team .
The Readiness Institute’s education and training system is world-class and is accredited for continuing education credits . It’s integrated learning approach will maximize the retention of the knowledge and, if our prescriptive approach is followed, will never be a cost to your organization.
In order to find out where you and the organization you work for are in pursuit of success or significance, we must first understand the difference between success and significance from a leadership and organizational level.
From an organizational standpoint, success is all about the organization. It tends to be based more on surface value accomplishments, such as how much money was made last year, how much money leaders get paid, and the material wealth that is displayed in the buildings.
With everyone in the world being locked-down, bored rigid with nothing much better to do and in desperate need of speaking with someone other than their significant other or dog, it’s a full-house at The Outliers Inn with guests who hail from the States, the UK, Germany, and Iceland represented.
The episode is long, but the conversation is fun and lively.
Since this article is timely and a companion to the Founder’s Corners article this month, we are rerunning this from last month.
For your consideration: for something, or someone, or some event to be transformational, it needs to possess truly destructive power.
Not that the destructive power has to be used, only that it is possessed and can be wielded or let loose with impunity; operating beyond any control, with the only countermeasure available being to react until such time as a new equilibrium is established.
