BTOES EXCLUSIVE SLIDE DECK: Lessons from Mt. Stupid – Programs Don’t Fail, People Do

Lessons from Mt. Stupid – Programs Don’t Fail, People Do

Courtesy of Operational Excellence Society ,'Lessons from Mt. Stupid – Programs Don’t Fail, People Do' offers the following exceptional takeaways:

Experience is the hardest teacher, for first she gives us the test, then teaches us the lesson.  Change often fails because we set expectations based upon what we do not know.  The more arrogant in our ignorance we become, the greater the height of Mt. Stupid – inevitably, we will either roll down a gentle slope or fall off a cliff.  How do we recognize the peril?  How do we avoid the peril?  What does it look like?

In this workshop, we will examine the root causes of programs failing and how you can avoid making them – including a prescriptive approach for designing and deploying your Operational Excellence program so that its success is as pre-ordained as possible.

About Operational Excellence Society

The Operational Excellence Society is a grass-roots organization that emerged from a large LinkedIn group led by Joseph Paris. It is a platform designed for executives and practitioner in the disciplines of Business Process Improvement (BPI), Continuous Improvement (CI) and Lean Six Sigma. As the name implies, the society is dedicated to change agents who embrace the ideals of Operational Excellence, defined as the continuous and deliberate improvement of company performance and the circumstances of those who work there — to pursue Operational Excellence by design and not by coincidence. Members of the Operational Excellence Society — from seasoned practitioners to the newly curious — are united by an interest in sustainable and deliberate improvement and the enhancement of overall quality and value throughout the value chain during the pursuit of perfection. To that end, they have established a certification program — a foundational system for creating a corporate culture where Operational Excellence is the norm: The Operational Excellence Enterprise Readiness System. Download this slide deck to see Joseph Paris discuss their journey and learn about Lessons from Mt. Stupid – Programs Don’t Fail, People Do.
