Honoring Our Troops & Their Own During Military Family Month
November is a time for making connections, often with families, friends, and food. November is also Military Family Month, a time to recognize our U.S. troops and the families who support them.
Did you know that many corporations have geared up savings and deals to recognize and honor military families during this season? Check out this guide and other ways to benefit from promotions honoring veterans, troops, and their families. Also, here is a way children of military families are supported.
We thank you for your service
One way that we at System Improvements offer year-round support for the military is through our job postings, published every Thursday morning. Many positions are a good match for job candidates with a military background.
System Improvements Inc. and TapRooT® have deep roots (no pun!) in the military, and we salute all our troops, veterans, and military families throughout the world
The cofounder of System Improvements and co-creator of TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis is Mark Paradies, whose career began as a leader in Admiral Rickover’s Nuclear Navy where he received NAVSEA 08’s Engineer Certification; learned Rickover’s equipment reliability best practices, and participated in Rickover’s culture of operational excellence.
With the development of TapRooT®, Mark and TapRooT® co-developer Linda Unger changed the way the world solves problems through advanced root cause analysis tools, training, and software, assisting in designing and improving performance improvement programs, and in investigating the root causes of accidents, sentinel events, equipment failures, and quality issues.
Mark and the other System Improvements’ gifted TapRooT® instructors have taught thousands of students around the world in a variety of industries, including: oil exploration and production, refining chemicals, plastics, and petrochemicals; mining, metals, and fertilizer; utilities, airlines, shipping, railroads, and light rail; pharmaceutical and consumer products; and manufacturing, telecommunications, network reliability, and government.
