A Process Assessment & Design Tool: T&D Systems View

I believe that you have the following 47 Processes happening in your organization. Some are in more control than others, as appropriate to your situation/context. From chapter 4 of my 2001 book: T&D Systems View…

…Scan these to quickly assess whether these are OK or not – and/or IF improving any one or collection of them might produce significant RETURNS making it worthy of doing…

Where might “improvement” INVESTMENTS generate a siginificant RETURN? Focus there!

We know it’s a long list. We know it’s a lot to think about.

We know you wish this T&D world were much simpler.

It isn’t, so let’s get on with the business of managing it and producing worthy T&D better, faster, and cheaper. And by worthy we mean with return on investment for economic value add. T&D for the shareholders.

Are there any IMPROVEMENT TARGETS in your mind now?

Do these systems and processes exist in your current situation? We bet that they do in one way or another, either formally or informally, in control or not in control. And, we don’t believe that every one of them should be equally controlled or equally formal.

As always, it depends.

More on that later in Chapters 8 through 28 – in T&D Systems View – a 2001 book by Guy W. Wallace – available as a hardbound and Kindle at http://www.amazon.com/ – and as a free PDF at http://www.eppic.biz/
