It started with a conversation.
You know them. One of those great conversations you have with a fellow Maximo user, business partner or someone involved in the incredibly supportive and dedicated Maximo community.
And then the Reliability Elements.
I had seen them in the past – but when I opened my own poster of them for the first time – whew - I started to sweat. Memories of college chemistry and late night memorizing sessions screamed through my mind…but I forced myself to pause. And really look at them. They were logically organized. In neat, understandable categories. Each was carefully detailed in their corresponding passports.
I started to read thru the passports. I was soon highlighting key points, and writing notes in the margins and on any available blank page I could find. I was hooked.
I went back and re-read the books and they had even more meaning than the first time I rushed through them. The gnarly, reactive characters of Doug, Mike and Billy were clearly visible in my mind from my years working in Manufacturing. But the ones who captivated my attention were Todd and James – those who worked at “integrity, responsibility, authenticity and something bigger than themselves”.
It was truly an incredible experience studying and preparing for the Certified Reliability Leader (CRL) exam.
All of the materials – from the passports, books, podcasts and webcasts on https://reliabilityweb.com/ - were interesting, engaging and changed many of my perspectives. And I passed the exam! I’m a CRL!
I owe an incredible amount of gratitude to two individuals who encouraged and supported me as I start my Reliability Journey: Paul Crocker and Dave Reiber. Both of these individuals are deeply ingrained in the Maximo Community, and are beyond amazing Reliability Leaders.
