I’ve a read a lot of articles about implementing change, but nothing resonated with me quite so much as, Accelerate! by John P. Kotter in the Harvard Business Review (http://hbr.org/2012/11/accelerate/ar/1).
Throughout 2012 The Bodhi Tree Group has worked on projects defining strategic direction for major broadcasters and helped set out paths for implementation. So many aspects [...]
The Bodhi Tree Group recently completed a major project to design an enterprise Media Asset Management (MAM) architecture for a leading Pay TV operator. We’ve written a case study describing how our team worked with our client to deliver a vision of efficient file-based processes, a set of baseline operational metrics, and a future roadmap for [...]
In previous posts, I’ve talked about developing a culture of continuous improvement as part of a Lean approach. Pareto (or 80:20 rule) is one simple and powerful technique that can help achieve this goal.

The Bodhi Tree Group has published a white paper on applying Lean principles to processing content in the Media and Broadcast industry. The white paper provides practical advice as well as looks at the theory of Lean in more detail.
Lean sees the operation, its people, the workflows, and technology as a total system. It seeks [...]
In the past few blog posts we’ve been looking at Lean and how the philosophy of avoiding waste and good housekeeping might benefit Broadcast operations, specifically Media Asset Management (MAM) and file-based workflows. In our final post in the series we look at some of the limitations of Lean in a broadcast content supply chain.
In our last post on Broadcast MAM the key concepts of Lean operations were introduced and how Toyota’s 7 areas of waste (or inefficiencies) could be a useful checklist in the broadcast industry. In this post we’ll look at how Lean could further benefit a Media Asset Management (MAM) and file-based workflows implementation by looking [...]
This is the first in a series of articles discussing how the Toyota Motor Company’s Lean philosophy can be applied to broadcast operations – specifically Media Asset Management (MAM) and file-based workflows. In this post we introduce the Lean philosophy and look at how the 7 areas of waste are relevant to eliminating inefficiencies for [...]
The third installment of our series of blog posts on recent projects looks at a challenge facing many broadcasters in the non-linear world – effectively managing rights across multiple platforms. The Bodhi Tree Group helped at large broadcaster and multi-platform service provider in APAC lay the groundwork for optimizing their rights operations to meet this [...]
We are often asked how we enlighten our clients and help them improve their media operations. Our projects are confidential in nature, however, over the next few weeks we will be giving you a taster of some of our recent work while respecting the privacy of our clients.
The Bodhi Tree Group recently helped a major [...]
