RPA Robotic Process Automation - Challenges and responses
Hello friends. This is Anshuman Tiwari and you are listening to my Podcast – The Operational Excellence Advantage. Thank you very much for over 100 downloads each of my previous two podcasts on Five Questions to review your year and the lean concept of Runner Repeaters and Strangers and its applications to Operations. If you haven’t heard these yet please take a few minutes and check them out. Today I want to talk about the popular topic of Robotic Process Automation or RPA as it’s popularly known. I don’t intend to make this a class or a plug in for popular software vendors and will try to stay clear of that. I will cover why RPA has still not taken over the world and its impact on the profession of Process Excellence or Transformation.Also, all views expressed here are my own and in my personal capacity. I work for a large IT Services company which provides RPA services as well hence wanted to make it clear that my views are personal and could be both incomplete and inaccurate.

All work is not equal - Using Runner Repeaters and Strangers for better outcomes!
Hello friends. I am Anshuman Tiwari, and this is my podcast on Quality and Operational Excellence. I call it the The Operational Excellence Advantage and am hoping to bring you views on how we all can use operational excellence as a competitive advantage at work. Your feedback is essential and always welcome. Today I want to share a key concept in Operational Excellence that is often missed out in the rush of getting things done and fighting a fire a day. I have often said that Operational Excellence is a balance of theory and practice. Most of us are consumed by the practice and do not take the time to stop and ask ourselves – what is the theory behind this? Is there a better theory I can use? What are others doing about this issue? The concept I wanted to share today is called - Runners. Repeaters. Strangers. This is a not often used concept from Lean Thinking but should be used more. Before I explain the concept, I want to highlight that 'differentiation' is the key to this concept. If you are a fan of the concept of 'standardization,' then 'differentiation' may seem counter-intuitive to you. So, what is the concept of Runners, Repeaters, Strangers about? In simple terms, it classifies all work done in three categories – runners are the most often repeated and standardized tasks, repeaters are less often repeated but fairly standard, and strangers are once in a while and with hardly any standardization. Let me explain. Next time you go to a fast-food chain, try to observe the ordering pattern. You can do this activity at any fast-moving place, but I think a fast-food counter is the most suitable place for this study and I suspect if you have kids, you are visiting such places often as well. Observe the ordering pattern, and you will notice that most people orders a very standard set – maybe fries, burger, and a soda (also called cola in some countries). The next and much smaller set of people will order something more complicated but not totally unusual. And a third set will have a very complex order – maybe something that the restaurant only makes once or twice a day. You get the point.
