The Helix Factor II - the implementer's edition (Book) - 5/25/2004 10:02:30 AM|
WITHOUT A DOUBT, THE BEST PRACTICES FOR BPI
Reviewer: Richard, CPA, CISA, CBM (BPI Consultant)from Madison, WI USA
WOW! The book's subtitle says it allóthese ARE the keys to creating efficiencies in business processes. Michael Wood extends the lessons learned in his first book, The Helix Factor, by providing a working manual, complete with templates and instructions. Using an actual case study, Mr. Wood shows you how to apply the Helix tools to business improvement. This is the only guide I have found that is useful as a field book to facilitating a process improvement project.
The Hexlix Factor II will definitely help you launch projects and ultimately bring them to a successful conclusion. This authoritative guidebook provides all the tools you need to your make business processes more efficient and create a positive impact to your bottom line.
The only thing missing is an electronic version of the templates used in the Helix approach. However, given the fact that they are relatively easy to construct and will provide a valuable learning experience from the reader, their omission does not detract from the importance of the material.
The Helix Factor: The Key to Streamlining Your Business Processes (Book) - 5/25/2004 9:59:56 AM
WARNING: THIS BOOK MAY BE HARMFUL TO YOUR COMPETITORS
Once I started reading this book, I was so hooked on the Helix approach that I absolutely had to read Helix II, the Implementer's Guide (more about that later). Then, after reading the first chapter, I recall saying aloud, "Finally, someone can explain how to align business processes to strategies and strategies to stakeholders' wants and needs. This author understands what line-of-site is all about." Using a series of easy to understand common-sense principles and factors, Mr. Wood provides a high-level step-by-step approach to making business process improvement a reality. If you are ready to change the way you do business, and want to get the edge on your competitors, this is a must read. To obtain a full appreciation for
the Helix methodology, however, you must read the Helix Factor II-The Implementer's Guide. This definitive guide will give you all the tools you need to make your business processes more efficient and create a positive impact on your bottom line. It is an investment in your businesses' future.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with our health care, it's the best in the world. However, we do have some things that need to be worked out with our health care insurance. You have some good ideas, M R . Now all we need is to elect some honest Americans to congress to work on it.

No place to hide, no place to go"
Something I can relate to....although surrounded by brick walls...the empty feeling of loneliness remains the same!!

I Need You (Poetry) - 12/30/2009 2:27:55 AM
Nice write, it reminds me of asong by Paul Weller and The Jam, by the same name.
I need you to keep me straight,
When the world donít seem so great,
And itís hard enough you know
I need you to be around
When my conscience brings me down
And the world feels so obscure
I want you to be the one
Who tells me off when I do wrong,
And you know I can be bad
I need you, I need you
Say youíll stay, make my day
Now what have I done,
Was it something I said - oh dear
I need you to turn me off,
When you think Iíve said enough,
To the extent of being a bore
I need you to tell me no
Slap my wrists and send me home
Tell me I canít come again
Now why are you crying -
Have I gone too far - again
Tell Me Please (Poetry) - 6/29/2009 10:56:36 AM

I think I understand this all too well...losing so much more than just a dear friend...with time it will be easier to handle such a loss...specially through death!!
"No answers fill the voids left by silent prayers
And in this fog of pain thereís only paths of fear
Friends have fallen from my view
Loneliness in colored hues
Shred the very essence of my soul
No Answers (Poetry) - 6/19/2009 1:08:55 PM
I like the repeating of the third and last stanzas, almost gives it a musical quality. Desperation in this weighs heavy on the reader until we are there with you.

Very profound and thought provoking write. We can be the first part or the last..I prefer the latter.
The Lesson (Poetry) - 2/13/2009 10:27:08 AM
What we choose to learn in our lifetime
is ours to keep for eternity.
We learn what we want to learn,
and others learn what THEY want to learn too.
But each hold the lessons close to their hearts
and transform them into valuable memories.
No one lesson learned is same as another's lesson,
for we all walk different paths.
At the end of the journey,
We are the one who will face God alone...
Sandie Angel :o)

I am in this very bad spot too today!!
Surrounded by tall trees
Which bend gracefully in stormy weather leaving me without power
The air becomes heavy with impending attack and visual electricity fills the sky,followed by the crash of displacement
I let droplets of rain fall onto me and wonder how it will feel,when the powerful lightning finally hits me!!
But since this moment it did not...!!
Now (Poetry) - 1/17/2009 7:08:06 PM

I Wish (Poetry) - 5/2/2008 11:07:27 AM
The feeling of being lonely creeps up on everybody. When you have such deep feelings for somebody and cannot express them you feel restricted, and you die to tell them how you feel. I have been in the same situation. Wait until the timing is right, and then explain these feelings. Bottling things up isn't healthy. Also, you never know what the outcome could be.
Extremely deep and beautiful write. Continue on :)

Terribly sad, but wonderfully expressed. Speaks to me, for sure.
Someone very close is losing his memory, and it hurts like bloody
fire. 'Long as we have memories. . .oh, well. There are those who would have us believe that to forget is a blessing. Sometimes it is, I grant. But sometimes, it is a tragedy. Thank you for your
sensitivity and honesty. Thank you for sharing this gift. Important part of yourself! xOx 'Pea' xOx

Oh, to be loved this much! The love expressed in this Love Offering, brought me to tears! I wonder what it would feel like to have a man adore you this way. SC
Fear, Love & Doubt (Poetry) - 12/5/2007 5:08:08 PM
In Coming, a direct hit to the heart! I find the hardest thing I have every tried to do was relate to another human being! Women want to talk it out, men want to ignore every problem, if they don't admit there is a problem, then it doesn't exist and then the Cold War begins. SC
Can't See Us Through (Poetry) - 12/5/2007 5:00:38 PM
I truly felt every word! There will always be WHYS giving us no peace of mind. When you gave and gave until there was nothing left to give, they took their sated self, moving on leaving a empty shell that once was you. That's the glory of love. SC

Forever Alone (Poetry) - 12/2/2007 10:27:06 PM
I sometimes think that poets pay for their creativity with painful, tragic lives.This awesome write touched me, I felt it and so understood it! SC
Forever Alone (Poetry) - 11/26/2007 11:34:44 AM
I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiments expressed thus far. IS sad. Deeply moving and reflective of the misery that few if any humans escape. This universal element raises your creation to a level that is rarely achieved. The talent and discipline that are behind the poem reveal a creator too strong and determined to let
despair win! Ironically enough, the poem is a pleasure to read. Surely, it gave you at least a little pleasure to create it. Isn't it wonderful that we have this kind of outlet?? That we can
c o n n e c t in this way?? Loving Hugs, 'Pea' xOxOx
