(SMART)X Solutions Require a Little Fear Porridge

Regular readers are familiar with the definition of a (SMART)X Game Changer.  New readers can click the link above to take a quick look at that definition of (SMART)X in that context.  In preparing materials for use in the (SMART)X Game Changer Series, and other contexts, I've added to the definition.

First, I've added the 5 Ss referenced in the Lean / Six Sigma world to the definition and have determined that the A includes the active ingredients in Fear Porridge.  

The 5 Ss include Sorting, Straightening, Shining (aka cleaning), Standardizing and Sustaining continuous improvement efforts in you work space, work flow and enterprise.  

Fear Porridge is another term built industry professionals need to know.

Below I've listed a few of the active ingredients in a good Fear Porridge.  Henceforth, the A in the term (SMART)X will be deemed to include the Active Ingredients in Fear Porridge.

Activation – (SMART)X Solutions require action. Get off your duff and MOVE!

Acceleration – (SMART)X Solutions accelerate as they gain traction and collaboration increases. Move the rocks off the path and leverage (BIM)X tools to increase integrated collaboration among connected team members.

Achievement – (SMART)X Solutions are goal and results oriented. Checking items off a “to do list” is irrelevant if you produce no results.  Achieve something!

Assessment – (SMART)X Solutions identify and track the metrics that measure success. Be aware of what is speeding or impeding solutions.
