ViRAL: More Than a Personal Planner; A Fun, Visual and No-Regrets Way of Managing Your Life
Presented By: Professor Jim Sutton
Are you struggling to reach your personal and professional goals? Have you tried traditional planning techniques, but you’re still getting the same results? Jim Sutton, an expert in systems engineering and an adjunct professor in the Operations Management Graduate Program, can help.
Join Jim tomorrow, March 29, at noon for a free webinar on his year-long journey to personal effectiveness. The webinar will feature a snapshot of the end result, called ViRAL: “Visible Reality for an Actionable Life.”
Inspired by his background in Lean Thinking and cognition, he began asking the question, “How can these concepts be applied to help someone accomplish more of the things that are important to them professionally and personally?”
The results have exceeded his hopes. Jim found his personal effectiveness quadrupled and his level of peace grew significantly. Lucky for us, Jim realized that these concepts are helpful to everyone, and he agreed to share his experience and findings. This approach enhances persistence…the quality that President Calvin Coolidge so famously recommended (“persistence alone is omnipotent”) above all others for success.
The result is essentially a “life-operations environment.” Unlike personal planners, which for me have been ineffective, it paints a simple, visible, real-time picture of life...both as you desire it to be, and as it is actually unfolding. It fundamentally incorporates time while breaking the tyranny of the “o’clock” scheduling that is nearly universal among planners.
What you will see is the current snapshot of the system Jim initially created for his own use. We hope you will join us for this session that's designed to help you become more effective in all avenues of your life.
A few minutes after you register, you will receive an email with the link needed to join the session at noon today. We hope to see you there!

About the Presenter: Jim Sutton
Jim Sutton is an Adjunct Professor for the Master of Science in Operations Management program. His career has crossed both business and military (contractor) worlds, creating systems focused on meeting people’s needs. Recognitions at the highest levels have followed, including the Shingo Prize, which Business Week has called "the Nobel Prize of Manufacturing," and the exclusive INCOSE ESEP (Expert Systems Engineering Professional) designation, of which only a few hundred have been awarded worldwide.
In the 1980s, Jim became one of the first to apply Lean/quality innovations in the U.S. (studied at GOAL/QPC, with first translations of Japanese Lean works). In the 1990s, he served as the Chief Architect of the Lockheed C-130J airlifter central computing software, where he applied Lean/quality concepts to quadruple productivity and cut defects to a tenth compared to industry norms.
In the 2000s, this work led to the C-130J completing DoD, FAA, and British MoD certifications in record time. C-27J program reusing this work received rapid certification by the Italian MoD.
Jim co-authored book “Lean Software Strategies” in 2005, applying Lean principles to software development. From 2009-2015, he was co-founder and later President of the Lean Systems Society (LSS), a multi-disciplinary organization of Lean and Systems thought leaders (President from 2012-2015).
For the last two years, Jim has consulted many of the world's largest banking, media, and software-development organizations on transformation using Lean and Agile principles and tools. Today he applies these hard-won lessons to helping motivated leaders improve their programs and organizational infrastructures.

DeVos said that many active-duty military families living in bases were dissatisfied with their neighborhood schools and that was affecting their career decisions. DeVos said that one way to improve the situation was by setting up education savings accounts where the parents would receive government funds earmarked for them in the public schools system. They can then use this money to pay for online classes, charter school courses and other options.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on Thursday called for allowing military families to use federal funds to pay for private school or other educational services for their children. The idea is part of…
