Founder’s Corner – Joseph Paris
Most companies preparing to launch an Operational Excellence Program do not take a moment to contemplate what their program is hoping to achieve, or even if what they are hoping to achieve is what the company truly needs.
These 9 Questions, asked of all the right people, help to get your program properly aligned and, in turn, receive the commitment necessary to be successful.
Only once these questions are answered, can the engineering and building of the program begin.
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.

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.

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.

Podcasts
State of Readiness is a podcast set as a fireside chat between Joseph Paris and a select industry leader. 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”
How does a person go from being a continuous improvement change agent at a manufacturer like Ford to one in healthcare like the Cleveland Clinic?
a podcast that delves into the complexity of modern supply chains and logistics.
Supply chain challenges are real, but they’re not new. In the face of disruptions ranging from natural disasters to pandemics, how do we make sure supply chains can keep up?
Shipping small items by airplane is expensive, but plausible. Shipping couches or dining room sets by air — not so much.
The Outliers Inn; a podcast where we examine and discuss the more odd goings-on in life, in business, and in the world, with your hosts; JP and Mule.
This episode is a broken-play, but we make the best of it! A regular to the Inn steps-up to substitute for a missing co-host, we change the format to allow visitors to be on-camera, we talk about time-wasters – and of course, beer. But not just any beer, Gummy Beer!

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 Winter darkness has noticeably given way to longer hours of daylight. The cold and the snows are abating. And a person can feel that Spring is just around the corner.
That is, except in Upstate New York, where spring doesn’t come until June. My daydreams drift to Fishing and Golf.
