Support the Earth, not just America
With uncanny perfect timing, I have started my final Graduate Renewable Energy Certificate (GREC) class, (Principles of Sustainability for Business Application), in the same week that our new president has suspended funding for all research being conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency. Why? To “undergo an unspecified internal vetting process before sharing their work outside the […]
Layoffs to Layups: Where Can We Find the Positive
This topic is treacherous territory to implement, much more even to debate. My experience with this dark and gloomy concept has usually been where I’m the one getting the pink slip, (side note: it’s usually a single layoff and not inclusive with a mass one). Each time it’s happen to me, I’ve been devastated even […]
What’s the limit for benefits?
I just started my first day at my new job with Jet.com and I couldn’t be more excited! This new startup environment has me jumping on my toes because it’s SO new to me: new industry, new company, new role/position. During the first bit of training, I almost felt dumb because I didn’t know any […]

Read the fine print on your ticket?
What I meant by “guarantees” in my last post was that there are certain requirements you’ll want to determine within your change improvement process that you can NOT compromise on. I understand there “are no guarantees in life.” But, if you’re paying for an outside vendor to help you with implementing improvements within your business, […]
So the second portion of getting to your ideal situation via destination postcard after making a plan of action is of course ordering the ticket. Booking your transportation to your grand destination, a.k.a. investing in the method, program, or process that will get you and/or your team to the ideal situation, will require a lot […]
Product Design Continued: Harmony with Manufacturing
Adding more to my previous post on avoiding product overdesign, new products need to also be prepared for manufacturing appropriately or are manufacture-able, (yes, I made up a word). Or, better said: you got the idea, got the manual, got the parts, but do you have the engineering in place in order to make your […]
