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.

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.
