One of 27


Today’s issue is brought to you by SKI’s Jonah3+3™

Define JONAH: In the world of Dr. Eli Goldratt’s TOC (Theory of Constraints, which today is considered a Law), we call an expert a “Jonah.” Why? The name comes from the best seller, The Goal — A Process of On-Going Improvement by Goldratt. The problem-solver character, the teacher of common sense throughout the book, is a college professor by the name of Jonah. Once you become trained in “The Logical Thinking Process” (TLTP, a series of logic tools to analyze conflicts) you may be certified as a Jonah. In my case, the class is three days of study and application, then a break of two days to let your brain decompress, then the final two and one-half days. Hence the trademark of Jonah3+3.

Too Intense

Let us start with one small yet profound tool in TOC…

One of the Six Elements of TLTP is the Root Cause Analysis. In TOC-speak we call it the Current Reality Tree (CRT). And yes, get ready for a bunch of acronyms. How can you know why the wheels came off if you don’t ask those involved in the business?

The Wailing Wall

The SKI Man will guide you and your leadership team through a simple yet thorough exercise (a Zoom session is perfect!) to help YOU determine the “one weakest link” disrupting your ability to deliver on your company’s promises. Achieving a 97% Due Date Performance is not unheard of in our world. What is your percentage of orders shipped COMPLETE and ON TIME? We consider this a KPI (key performance indicator)!

I suggest we both sign an agreement that we will protect any trade secrets or “special sauce” that might be discovered as we work together.

P.S. As mentioned in the video, once you understand and comprehend the brilliance of TOC for Root Cause of Analysis, if you wish to become a Jonah and learn to fix ALL of your challenges, I will apply your payment towards the Jonah3+3 Certification.
