Our History

The Readiness Institute was founded by internationally renowned thought leader on operational excellence; international entrepreneur; prolific writer and a sought-after strategist, consultant, and speaker Joseph Paris.
Paris originally founded the XONITEK Group of Companies in 1985 – an international management and operations consultancy helping companies located around the globe become high-performance organizations.
Soon after, emerged the Operational Excellence Society: A grass-roots organization that emerged from a large LinkedIn group also led by Paris.  Also described as a “think tank” that creates and aggregates knowledge and know-how for professionals and companies who have the desire to achieve peek-performance across the entire value-chain of their enterprise – the society was inspired, in part, by the Lean value known as  gemba. The society supports regional collegiate collaboration, the exchange of best-practices, shared experiences, and face-to-face mind-share.
Where the concept of the Readiness Institute itself manifested out of a need for a stand-alone platform of the same nature as its sister-companies – with the sole purpose of providing quality business education and training courses – it is also the great success of Paris’ book “State of Readiness – Operational Excellence as Precursor to becoming a High-Performance Organization” (May 2017) that catapulted the growth of the Readiness Institute.
