Client Story

“We waited, watched and monitored for four more days to make sure that it, in fact, did work.” (The Window of Opportunity) (Cargill)

“We waited, watched, and monitored for four more days to make sure that it, in fact, did work.”

“Animal feeds play a leading role in the global food industry; and is the largest and most important component to ensuring safe, abundant, and affordable animal proteins.” So says the International Feed Industry Federation. The IFIF believes that in the feed industry, it is vital that clear standards apply throughout the whole feed chain. Legacy systems in some of these mills were wired as long as 50 years ago. Enter JB, the plant manager of a regional pellet mill in Central Texas. JB needed to have clear controls over the entire process, while reducing the risk of unexplained shutdowns. GlobaLogix conducted a thorough site survey, and drew up detailed plans to install a new Programmable Logic Control system. The challenge was to be able to switch over to the new system during a scheduled five-day maintenance window. Under the watchful eyes of JB and his team, the GlobaLogix team, including designers, programmers, and electricians, installed, commissioned and had the start-up completed – on time – and within the window allowed. We weren’t done yet. GlobaLogix waited, watched and monitored for four more days to make sure that it, in fact, did work. Then to finish it, GlobaLogix gave JB everything, including drawings, schematics and plans, so that he now knew how it all worked. Truth be told, JB sleeps better these days.

Meaningless Outcome Defined Planning

Can we quit the obnoxious and meaningless characterization of desired results masquerading as an action plan? Think about how often a leader, when asked for plan details, replies with some description of a favorable outcome without ever describing how that might come about. If you can’t remember one, just google about any political press conference.[…..]

Is Your Lexicon Lacking?

“You know, really I mean that like wow, it’s tougher to say like what you really mean.” Sound familiar? Is this you? Is it me? Have you noticed that speech patterns tend to deteriorate over time?

Phobias, Fears and Unicorns

If you want to vilify someone just tack on a phobia label. These days fear of anything makes us the villain, the bad actor, the malevolent one. Leaders, whether elected, chosen or self appointed, demonize fear as a tonic to assuage the masses of every threat. It’s meant to dull us down to a state of[…..]

Different Is Better

If you’re looking for better start first with different. In culture of professed accomplishment, we’re bombarded daily with messages of superiority that lack identifying substance. Companies proclaim they are better. They provide superior customer service. Their product is highest quality. Words, hollow words. Regardless of how loudly you shout – shoppers, customers and purchasers won’t[…..]

Hyping Millennials

I’m about to scream if I read or hear another nonsensical diatribe of meaningless kerfuffle about how Millennials are generationally unique in human history. According to the ‘experts’ and pundits this group of young people see life from an entirely different historical perspective. Let’s see, they are smarter, more computer savvy, more collaborative and intrinsically[…..]
