TLS Continuum: The Missing Link

Last week in our weekly blog post we talked about what the TLS Continuum was, however I left out of the discussion a valuable point about what is missing from most continuous process improvement efforts. That missing element is critical thinking. Hey I get it, it is just not you. Our next generation can’t critically think either. The base of the TLS Continuum is critical thinking so it is important that we understand the role it plays in process improvement.

The TLS Continuum process…

The letters TLS stand for the three components of the continuum. The letter T stands for the Theory of Constraints. Created by Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt in his book “…

TLS Continuum: Dangers in Collaboratiion

The continuous process improvement field is inundated with articles and practices touting the benefits of working with cross-functional teams. The TLS Continuum methodology is based on the input of various views as to possible solutions to the problems facing organizations. But there is a downside to this effort to arrive at consensus on potential solutions to these very problems. That downside is groupthink.

What do we mean by the term groupthink? Irving Janis tells us that…

Nurturing The Bond Between HR and Talent Acquisition



Human Resources and your Talent Acquisition team often make up two reluctant sides of the same coin. Whilst the crossover between these departments is inevitable, it is not always to the benefit of your staff - especially if there is friction between the two parties. As a leader, it is important that you find a way of bringing balance to the office, by carefully managing and integrating…

TLS Continuum: The Dangers of Assumptions

Those of you who have followed this blog since the Blogger days in the early 2000’s know that there are two topics I have strongly avoided in this space – one is religion and the other is politics. And yet the current political climate provides clear evidence of the dangers of assumptions in our…

TLS Continuum: What do we mean by Process Ownership?

In last week’s post we asked the question, who really is your process subject matter expert?  In this week’s post I want to take the discussion to another view of the question. If we have assumed who the process SME is within your organization, then what are their obligations to the…

Online Training Helps Improve the Human Resources Experience For Everyone

It is a foregone conclusion that every business, no matter how big or small, needs at least one human resources professional to oversee the operation. Human resources (HR) has become a cornerstone position in every ethical business; the job has evolved into much more than it used to be. Years ago, an HR professional was tasked with the duties of administering payroll, insurance, and retirement plans. Today, that same individual is asked to do so much more. HR has become a “catch-all”…

TLS Continuum: But I still don't understand the correlation

Over the course of this series of blog posts, and most recently the last couple of weeks, we have stressed that the TLS Continuum requires the creation of a new normal in the organization. It calls for a new form of corporate culture. But where is the correlation between the TLS Continuum, Change management and the New Normal?

In order to answer that question we need to backtrack to the beginning of the journey if you will. Your organization has been in existence for decades, however…

TLS Continuum:Change is hard

Change is hard, and we understand that. It is never easy but at times there is no recourse. Those of you who have followed this blog since 2006 when we began know that there are two topics I never discuss – Politics and Religion. But when we look at the current political turmoil that has come about due to the upcoming presidential race, I have to stop and consider the impact on the business world and change in particular.

Consider these facts:

TLS Continuum: Are You Bankrupt?

Trust me I am not trying to delve into your personal affairs. What I am asking is your organization in financial trouble? I am asking for a reason unrelated to a full investigation of your organization’s finances. I have had to cancel two training sessions in the past week due to the fact that the market served by the organizations was being confronted by layoffs because the oil prices are too low. I am much more concerned with how you view your human capital assets. Are you allowing them to…

TLS Continuum: I know my organization and we are waste free
