TLS Continuum Part 69: TLS Continuum, Innovation and Society

A couple of weeks ago I posed in the weekly blog whether you are transactional or transformation based. While I contended that the new climate we are in mandated that you shift your focus from being totally transactional focused to being transformational focused, the events of the past week tells me that to some degree we need to continue the transactional focus.

Whether your focus is the TLS Continuum and process improvement or being innovative in the development of relationships…

TLS Continuum Part 68: What ever happened to the Cadbury Model?

I had the opportunity last week to attend the monthly meeting of my local chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management, which covered a legislative update for its membership. I am from a family of lawyers so I understand they have a role to play. But every time I come away with the same feeling.

For over 30 years when I attend these it always seems to be the case of us against them. The lawyers tell us that we have to begin to develop strategies to combat the rash of…

TLS Continuum Part 67: Question for the day - Transactional or Transformational

If we look back in time, we find that whether you call it HR or personnel it has always it seems been our job to put out fires. It has always been our job to be the go to person when a problem needs to be resolved. That means that we respond to a given issue, at a given time, in a given space. This means that we are transactional in nature. defines transactional as the process of carrying on or conducting (business, negotiations, activities etc.) to a conclusion or settlement.…

TLS Continuum Part 66: The Missing Element in Process Improvement

The United States as a country is losing its way. Many global businesses are losing their way. The educational system is losing its way. This is not the prelude to some political office campaign. This is a fact of life.  We have become accustomed to becoming in essence, a nation of robots. By the nature of this attitude we are condemning our organizations to a period of a lack of innovation and making our businesses great.

When we are brought into this world we learn by experimenting.…

TLS Continuum Part 64: What Works? The Customer Experience

In this final installment in this four part series we have reached the step, which the TLS Continuum looks at the Six Sigma segment of the process.

TLS Continuum Part 63: What Wows

In last week’s blog I discussed the response to What if? What does our future organization look like to the marketplace? By doing this we have established the gap analysis between what the customer wants and what we are providing to them. In this next installment we look at the introduction of solutions to resolve the gap that resulted from the analysis. When we combine the design tools with the improve stage of the TLS Continuum, we discover a clear roadmap for showing the customer what we…

We begin this journey by understanding that the ultimate outcome is going to affect people. The changes you make in the long run are going…

TLS Continuum Part 60: A new perspective on the TLS Continuum

I have written extensively in this blog series about the power of the TLS Continuum in your organization. Like most of you I read the professional media and books to stay on top of what is going on in our industry. Every now and then you come across a concept which changes your whole focus or makes your mind run a mile a minute. I have just such a concept in two things I have read recently. The first was an article written by Tim Brown and Roger Martin in article titled…

TLS Continuum Part 59: Where do I Begin? 10 Commandments of Project Selection

Your organization believes that there is a problem with the organization, so the tendency is to try and repair everything at one. While on the surface that may see like the right direction for the organization, this approach seldom meets the end goal. This segment of the TLS Continuum Blog Series suggests that there are 10 commandments to selecting projects that will bring the most benefit to you and your organization.

TLS Continuum Part 58: We do not see the world as it is, we see it as we are

If you watch the media and social postings there a lot of comments about why process improvement efforts fail. The reasons for excuses run a wide gamut. I would suggest there is a more fundamental reason for improvement efforts that fail. We have the wrong focus. I am not suggesting that the…

TLS Continuum Part 57: What Is In It For Me?

I was reading the Summer 2016 issue of the MIT Sloan Management Review in which an article appeared by Catherine Bailey and Adrian Madden titled “What Makes Work Meaningful or Meaningless.” The article gave me some pause for thought as to why cross functional teams sometimes failure to reach the goals that they have set.

My response is that these teams fail because we have not properly…

Three questions you should ask before taking a new job

Whether you are on the side of those who hire or interviewed, know that the process of finding a good job option is a challenge for everyone involved, but worth seeking out.

I recently read a study showing that more than 60% of Americans do not feel their work is a good option for them. He also noted that more than half of all US workers surveyed feel "unhappy" and / or "depressed" in his current job. 

Whether you are on the side of those who hire or interviewed, know that the…
