Organizational Systems Thinking Using Custom Mapping in JMP®

David Sais, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, Sandia National Laboratories

Managers have a detailed working knowledge of their responsibilities for their department, but may not always have a high-level view or systems perspective of the center or organization to which their department belongs. This limited view can result in managers making wasteful or detrimental decisions. Using custom mapping in JMP, combined with Application Builder and local data selection filters, I will create a deceptively simple yet powerful model to elevate managers’ perspectives to a high level and promote a more strategic mindset. I will use the interactive and dynamic elements of JMP to present a custom map of my organization and demonstrate how various training and resource management decisions affect the organizational system as a whole.
