The Japanese have a word for what gets you out of bed in the morning: They call it Ikagai and that means you are doing: What you love, are good at, the world needs and you can be paid for. “Buckload” is my Ikigai… Let me explain why….
John Nash, storied Mathematician and subject of the Novel and Movie “A Beautiful Mind” made a significant contribution to Buckload. In both the book and movie you will find the following quotation attributed to Dr. Nash: “I don’t believe in luck. I do believe in assigning VALUE to things.” Buckload is a process that assigns a value to things.
Buckload is a scalable methodology for the developing a strategy that enables the design, implementation and evaluation of cross-functional decisions. These decisions are meant to enable an organization to achieve both its short and long-term objectives by developing new and added value to their enterprise. Information that is needed to illustrate the ROI and/or value of a new business process.
Buck’s law – “Success follows Value”
Buckload’s secret sauce for creating added value is called RRI. RRI is Stratification Methodology that uses proven “Common Denominators” to track and calibrate the volume and value of specific Tasks and their contribution to accomplishing specific Goals. If you are interested I will email you an example of a completed AS-IS Buckload Questionnaire example that illustrates the above concept.
Buckload’s special sauce is how we assign a Value to Things that are hard to count and harder to assess value. This is the first step for gathering the information needed to manage the thru-put productivity of any task.
Dr. Einstein’s famously stated, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” If you would like to start a conversation re: a different approach to leading others to be more successful, give me a call.
Just to be clear – Buckload provides both quantitative and qualitative measurements of knowledge workers’ productivity. Buckload is not a solution looking for a problem. I developed a process named (by others) Buckload gathers the raw information needed to identify problems and then provide specific solutions in the form of:
I developed a process named (by others) “Buckload” which identifies existing opportunities for creating new value within any enterprise. By using Buckload we will identify the Common Denominators that evolve at the task level. These task are the basic building block for developing team efforts and new value chains and a your, ultimately a unique and habit forming competitive edge.
Buckload accomplishers this by gathering the raw information needed to identify problems and then develop specific solutions in the form of 1. High value content delivery: Making use of your existing data and information to promote a rich experience for the user community. 2. Strategic integration of Knowledge Management across and beyond the enterprise: Developing a multi-collaboration ecosystem to seamlessly integrate organizational disciplines (KM, process management, quality, organizational development, learning, etc).
If you are interested, or would jut like to challenge the above claims, and we can arrange a meeting to discuss.
