Comment: Be the James Bond for Your Company – Innovation in Process Excellence

comment

James Bond is an innovator in process excellence, if for no other reason than because he shows considerable talent for utilizing the tools available to him in just the right way at the right time to substantive effect. Process excellence brings forth a vexing paradox in organizations. Just when companies are at their most successful, leaders are less willing to make the changes and take the risks necessary to prepare for the next wave of success. Through the insights of James Bond we can understand just how critical it is to continually question the dogma of what tools are currently used when, and get to the root of how more active and iterative assessments must be of the tools we use and their timing to best contribute to our ongoing success. Question everything.

It shouldn’t happen to a Legal IT editor

extra-news-icon

So this morning I forgot we had a power-cut scheduled so the tree fellers, (actually there was only one fellow) from whatever foreign corporation that provides our electricity, could carry out some maintenance work on our overhead power cables. Consequently, the first I was aware of the outage was when the alarms on the UPS units in the office started beeping. The UPS worked fine except some muppet (that’ll be me then) had wired them up incorrectly so they were linked to things like label printers but not the modern and wifi router.

Now Donna and the Payne Group take the Ice Bucket Challenge

extra-news-icon

Following the challenge set by DocsCorp last week, Donna Payne and some of her team from the Seattle office of PayneGroup accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The sound is not good on this clip but Donna nominates Traveling Coaches, Profiscience Partners and Jeffrey Roach and EncoreTech to take up the challenge. And well done Team PayneGroup for doing it in the street – and outside a Starbucks. We also like the fact Donna appears to use a goldfish bowl. (Please note: no fish were harmed in the making of this video.)
