COMPANY VISIONS – ARE THEY JUST NONSENSE?

by | Jan 30, 2018

The obvious Quick and simple is not always sustainable, that’s the hard bit. However, on occasion there may always be a sudden need to increase performance in a “step” manner. For example, there may be a sudden peak demand on a business that is beyond output capacity.

The Method (the “what”)

“Measure it, and it will improve” is the baseline concept with truth in it. From our years of experience across many industry sectors, by putting in a performance measure, there will be an improvement in results. 20% just happens to be a common outcome.

The “how”

Getting people to work harder is definitely NOT the request or approach. Nor is cutting corners with safety and quality. There is however a common human element of focusing in more when things are deemed important. As we focus, wasteful distractions reduce, and we “get the job done”. The important ingredient we’re adding here is the measure. If done correctly, adding the measure gives the message that it’s important. Some simple steps to follow are:

1) Tell people why

“Call to action” appears to be the latest term doing the corporate rounds. A basic principle it appears to support is that people will generally rally behind a cause if it is clear and generates a sense of urgency.

 

In Summary:

Measure:Follow steps 1 to 5

Control:Prioritise the genuine problems. Fix some easy things, and then apply Root Cause analysis to complex problems

Improve:  A good foundation now exists to effectively deploy CI/Kaizen tools and approaches
