coyote_5Wile E. Coyote Is My Process Improvement Hero

Of all the heros and superheros I have known, Wile E. Coyote has never been on that list. I only recently discovered an ardent admiration for Mr. Coyote. Why? Because, he is a process improvement expert. He is a tenacious problem solving animal and an avid proponent of Plan-Do-Check-Act. Mr. Coyote may not realize how good he is but he does have a fan club. At this writing there are five fan pages on Facebook regarding Wile E. Coyote with a grand total of over 19,000 likes/members. Mr. Coyote may not even realize his process improvement process is classic. Nevertheless, here is what Mr. Coyote does that is so amazing.

Social Media - What's the Point? PDF  | Print |  E-mail

ROII think it is fair to say, at this point of its short history, that social media is misunderstood. Opinions survive on either side of the spectrum. The crevasse exists between the early and the late adopters; just like it does with any breakthrough in technology. A computer story is illustrated within that is parallel to changes brought by the introduction of the airplane, automobile, and even telephone before that.

The Need for Order PDF  | Print |  E-mail

OrderWho needs it?  Everyone!  Everywhere!

 Actually, I really don't have to justify the need for order; you have your own rationalization. What I am saying is you already have a “need for order”. Whether you realize it or not, you do require some order in your life. Even if you are the “non-conformist maximus”, you have a certain need for order. Of course, the anal retentive have a higher need for order.

 An amusing digression: I had a t-shirt which read, “Does anal retentive have a hyphen?” I have the answer! It is spelt both ways! With the hyphen, it’s an adjective. Without the hyphen, it’s a noun.
