Securing the Future

Actions Produce Outcomes
A chain is no stronger than its weakest link!

What helps your company beat the competition?

    • Better shelf level (product) availability?
    • Faster, more reliable lead-times (time to market)?
    • Better on-time delivery?
    • Providing the above, while staying within budget?
    • Projects completed on-time, in-scope, and in-budget?
If you answered "yes" to any of the above, then the Jonah Program® for Operations might just be what you are looking for -- the leadership "know-how" to more effectively align all business functions to deliver and operations performance-based business strategy.

"Priority of the moment. There's got to be a better way."

Hanging Fire

by Jeff Cox, co-author of The Goal
with Dale Houle & Hugh Cole of AGI-Goldratt Institute

"I am aware that my projects fall behind. But what am I to do? Let me just say that I am sick and tired of getting put off. When you cant get what you need in a timely fashion, what's going to happen? You fall behind! My stuff is always being pushed aside or sent to the back of the line because somebody else has some pressing need. And by the way, I think you know that 'somebody' I'm talking about. Most of the time it's him. What am I supposed to do? Put a gun to Carmen's head? Or to Margie's? Frankly, I am glad that Rainbow finally got to be the priority! Thank you, Hanging Fire List!"

Another silence, this time from Diana.

"Di?" asked Janet.


"I appreciate what you did."

"you're welcome."

They hung up. Diana stared at the walls for a moment. Then she said to herself, "Priority of the moment. There's got to be a better way."
