  • See if you can get some “credible” projections on energy savings from the high speed door closer vendor rep and then use a subset of @venerablebede ‘s analysis.

    This may save some work but of course @venerablebede full technique will work. 2 years, 5 months ago

  • @farisrodhi Hope this helps you figure it out.

    @KatieBarry Thank you for jumping in and making the connection. Looks like it worked out well.

    @Venerablebede Great job. Knew you were the right person for this. Hopefully it can serve as more of a template for people in general. Some of the financial modeling stuff you see on line is very short…[Read more]


    Thanks @VenerableBede for a very clear and detail explanation. I will try to do the step by step and get to all of you if this successful. As you mentioned the tricky part to measure the HVAC power usage will be a challenge to implement this. However, thanks for clear explanation and I will do the study as shared. Thanks =) 2 years,…[Read more]

  • @Mike-Carnell  So close! @venerablebede is what you were going for. 2 years, 5 months ago

  • @Marchand I am not real sure what your issue is with the idea of launching under a CFO. When we deployed at General Electric, we were under Gary Reiner who was the CIO. Not a real secret. Jack Welch explains it in his book Straight From the Gut.

    When I ran the BHP Billiton deployment it was under Karen Lay-Brew who was also the CIO.

    When we did…[Read more]

  • @cfberardinelli I like the Beatles quote. I did an article for Quality Progress a few years back and threw in a similar quote from The Greatful Dead – “What a long strange trip its’s been.”

    @cseider and @venerableBede Have to agree South Africa was an amazing experience for us all. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    @Ddelisle Yes this is a…[Read more]

  • @Darth How about your beginnings? You don’t have to do it on parchment as you did when you began.

    @VenerableBede That ride isn’t over yet. We still have stuff coming in South America and Asia 2 years, 6 months ago

  • Love this thread and reading how everyone has started in process improvement. I’m going to tag: @cseider, @mike-carnell and @VenerableBede.

    Engineer in school > Nuclear engineer (yes, designing cores and such) > GE engineering leadership program (rotational, functional assignments) > EH&S program manager > Plant manager (Green Belt trained) >…[Read more]

  • @edjimenez, great question!

    At GE and Citi, we used to define metrics, create a regular dashboard, and then review it with process owners and the executive team. The process owners knew that if something in their organization went awry, that the executive team would know about it through the metrics. This made the process owners more proactive…[Read more]

  • Great article on Kaizen for anyone thinking of running one, by @cseider, @VenerableBede and @Mike-Carnell. Well done, guys!

  • @VenerableBede Happy birthday, bud! You share the same special day as @ErinDucceschi.

    Hope you have a great day! Don’t let @Mike-Carnell give you any crap.
