Achieving a Culture of Discipline that supports a High Reliability Organization
AntiEntropics, Inc. a performance enhancement consulting firm, announces the release of their newest book and accompanying workshop 'Discovering Operational Discipline'. The concept was distilled from decades of observing the characteristics of high performance teams and individuals. It examines the 15 principles, attitudes and values that drive organizational excellence in the areas of quality management, safety management, environmental responsibility, and profitability.
Operational discipline is defined as a consistent pattern of desirable behavioral choices that support successful human activity. The book explores the 15 characteristics that we unconsciously seek during any interaction with others. Developing a high level of operational discipline is the foundation that supports any successful management system and helps a company move from good to great and cultivate level 5 leadership in your management team (collins, 2001).
Quality management systems are naturally enhanced and profitability can be maximized when your organization displays the representative behaviors of operational discipline. Behavior based safety programs, process safety management programs or environmental risk management systems also benefit from an organization that promotes a high level of operational discipline.
The book includes self-evaluation and development tools, group exercises, and discussion questions. It helps readers assess their personal level of operational discipline as well as their team and organization's value for operational discipline. Values-based and awareness raising, Discovering Operational Discipline introduces the synergistic relationships between business excellence, operating excellence and operational discipline for an organization. A facilitator's guide is available to provide a one-day presentation of the concept to your organization. It includes a PowerPoint presentation suitable for customization. Help your entire workforce discover the advantages that reveal themselves when everyone practices a high level of operational discipline. The book 'Discovering Operational Discipline' is available on amazon.com.
