Find the little steps

There are certain themes that keep on turning up when you look into the performance of an organisation.

One of the recurring themes is that of progress, or lack of it, on key projects.

We've talked about the use of 'kaizen' principles before - trying to find the smallest amount of action that you can take to start moving you forward with an endeavour.

Many recent projects have utilised this very principle to get some movement on a project before a natural level of acceleration takes place bringing the project back up to speed.

It all goes back to the realisation that people can get freaked out by change and struggle to make the right changes to their working ways in order to implement the improvement.

Little steps - it sounds like it will take forever, but trust me - it usually saves a lot of time and effort.
