Q&A with Robert Thikoll conducted by Lynn Fosse:
Mr. Thikoll was recently interviewed about his roles and responsibilities as the VP at Ingersoll Rand for Global Operational Excellence. He was asked a variety of questions including how his day-to-day efforts are focused in his position. He informed Miss Fosse that his role is to be responsible for the growth of the company and their commitment to Operational Excellence through the lean transformation. He also provides through his role influence, leadership and a hands-on engagement of lean initiatives throughout the company.
Day-To-Day Focus In Role
When asked about his daily role and focus, Mr. Thikoll says that his daily focus is always about people first. The company’s focus is on creating a continuously-improving environment which fosters leaders into becoming coaches of expert-level problem solving. Many corporations which begin a lean journey will end up either abandoning the journey or diluting it to the point where they aren’t using lean thinking anymore at all. He feels there needs to be a balance with striving for results through balancing creation and the process of standard work.
Robert Thikoll- Businessman
Thikoll learned a lot about how to perform his current role from past ones he has had. He had worked for Toyota in years past and was given the opportunity to learn how to build products with his own hands at a factory.
After Toyota, he worked for the Danaher Corporation where he learned that it isn’t always easy to transform businesses into lean thinking. He found that most businesses need to see ahead of time if lean thinking is going to be beneficial.
Mr. Thikoll believes that the most valuable and important evolution of his career came when he began to transform from a person who was just teaching lean thinking and expecting everyone to jump on board to being someone who was able to thoughtfully teach it. He therefore created “pull” for his assistance and mentorship from those who would eventually become true believers of the lean way of thinking.

There are tons of supplements are available in health food stores, outlets dedicated wholly to dietary and lifestyle supplements, supermarkets, and e-commerce retailers. While many of them provide some benefit – in general, a very limited level of positive results directly related to a particular supplement’s use – few supplements have been proven to yield positive results. As such, it’s misleading for supplement manufacturers to label or market their products as having benefits when they haven’t undergone clinical trials or have been researched thoroughly enough to have their claims substantiated.
Elysium Health is different than many other supplement manufacturers, researchers, and marketers, as their sole product – Basis – has been proven to work thanks to a clinical trial that was conducted earlier this year.
Basis is made up of six ingredients, three of which are found in the capsule that contains the powdered ingredients inside. The central ingredient is nicotinamide riboside, a chemical substance that creates nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide once it’s processed by the human body. Basis’ secondarily active ingredient is pterostilbene, a sirtuin activator that only works in the direct presence of NAD+ (short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), although the positive sign indicates that it has a positive charge, in this case having two extra electrons.
Silica is also found within each capsule of Basis, and is intended to lengthen the life of the supplement. The three ingredients that make up each capsule, the barriers between the powdered active ingredients, including silica, plus microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable magnesium stearate, and hypromellose.
Although Basis has not been evaluated by the United States Food and Drug Administration, the oversight organization that deals with the testing and potential approval of medications used in the United States, Basis has, in fact, been subject to a clinical trial.
Funded by Elysium Health themselves, the clinical trial sought out to see if taking a combination of nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene, 250 and 50 milligrams of each, respectively, would increase the blood serum concentrations of NAD+.
As the scientists and business people confident enough in the assumptions made about the combination’s benefits thought, the above mixture of nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene increased NAD+. To maintain a steady level of NAD+ over periods of time, simply taking them on a daily basis would suffice.
Each of the 120 people that participated in the trial weren’t certain if they were taking a placebo, one-half dose of Basis’ equivalent ingredients – Elysium Health recommends healthy adults take two capsules per day – or a full dose of Basis’ equivalent. The results indicated that, in participants that took 250 milligrams of nicotinamide riboside and 50 milligrams of pterostilbene on a daily regimen for at least 28 days, participants’ average levels of NAD+ rose 40 percent. Participants that took twice the above amount saw, on average, their levels of NAD+ rise 90 percent.
Beginning next year, Waiakea, the company that markets eco-friendly Hawaiian volcanic water, will begin using the first plastic bottles that are completely degradable. The bottles are produced using TimePlast, the only patented additive that allows for the nano-degradation of plastic. It reduces plastic’s lifespan from 1,500 years to about 15 years. Waiakea already uses 100% recycled plastic in its bottles. They will be the first company to use the additive TimePlast. The polymer turns plastic into a degradable carbon-based wax. The process took 5 years and over 1,200 tests to develop.
In all its processes the environmentally-conscious Waiakea bottled water company follows “Malama i ka ‘Aina,”, a Hawaiian tenant which means “care for the land.” It guides their production, packaging, marketing and use of the profits generated. Waiakea Water has adopted a business philosophy called Triple Bottom Line which considers the social and environmental impact of the company’s activities in addition to its financial growth. Waiakea uses only environmentally sustainable processes and practices that do not damage the Earth.
In addition to working in harmony with the environment, Waiakea Water seeks to have a positive impact on people worldwide through its charitable efforts. Working with Pump Aid, for every liter of water Waiakea sells the company donates 650 liters to communities in need. So far, Waiakea has donated hundreds of millions of gallons of water along with their other charitable activities. The company’s continued success proves idealism and good business practices can work hand in hand to produce grand, impactful results.
The former CEO and chairman of United Technologies Corporation (UTC) is a Canadian businessman named Louis Chenevert, and one of the most successful people in that corporation, who has brought to UTC countless achievements and successes during his career.
Born in Quebec, Louis was also the president of an engine business that UTC owns, called the Pratt & Whitney, where he worked for a long time and learned most of the duties of a CEO and leader of an organization. Louis Chenevert then went to HEC, in Montreal, where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in production and management and gathered more knowledge and experience on administration and business leadership. Louis’ career in UTC started in 1993 when he left General Motors to work for Pratt & Whitney. Due to his success at Pratt & Whitney, he eventually was promoted to the CEO of the company.
When Louis Chenevert was elected as the CEO, America’s economy was in recession. However, as a testament to his leadership and entrepreneurial skills, he was still able to raise the share-price of UTC to 200% which was from $37 to $117. It was an incredible margin, and the success of the decisions of the CEO Chenevert shocked everyone in the company.
Because of that rise in net value and reputation, UTC remained on top of the aerospace and building industry during Chenevert’s time as the CEO without being dodgy with taxes, relocating, brushes with environmental compliance laws and most importantly, without underpaying UTC’s workers. Louis Chenevert kept making business decisions in the future that would keep skyrocketing his business and winning the competition.
In UTC, Chenevert is known as a think tank or “the man with a plan” who always have a strategy in their business of innovating sophisticated jet engines as well as having military and commercial contracts worldwide. The employees and co-workers of Louis hold him very dearly both for what he has done for the company and for his personality.
With Chenever at the leadership of UTC, the company received unprecedented growth and was able to focus all its available skilled workers, resources and strengths to the aerospace and building industry to the point that it has become their identity.
