|If you are struggling to use|
existing methods, why not
create your own?
It's the results we're bothered about right?
For whatever reason some people just don't grasp a pre-defined methodology. They do however grasp the key principles of what is trying to be achieved. Starting there can help them to create a half-way house when it comes to an improvement approach, one they can build upon.
Your business will have nuances, variations on how it works to other businesses. Whilst the principles of improvement hold for all types of business (flexibility is the key) you can vary the application method.
If you are struggling to implement an improvement process to your business then why not come up with your own version of it? Getting it more or less right and then improving it later can be a good strategy.
Progress usually always beats procrastination.
