What's your improvement baseline?

Knowing where you are starting from and where you are wanting to head to are two of the basics of process improvement.

So here's today's question for you?

Creating rapid improvement action plans

The CCC (Concern, Cause, Countermeasure) approach is a great way to start a process improvement activity and is a featured tool of the StreamLiner software that launched this week.

I have recorded a short video (just over 3 minutes) to explain how this works within the software.

The unsung hero of continuous improvement

I was being quizzed the other day about different improvement strategies that can be applied to businesses.

They wanted to know what I thought they should focus their energies on.

I knew the person asking me the question was expecting me to say 'Lean' or 'Six Sigma'.

I paused for a moment and then answered:

Kamishibai Boards book free today on Kindle

My book 'Kamishibai Boards' is free today (9th March 2016) until Friday (11th March 2016) for the Amazon Kindle.

You can get a free reading app for your smartphone or tablet if you don't own one of their e-readers.

A Kamishibai Board is a fantastically simple idea to help establish routines within a business and are great if you want to embed new processes, make 5S stick, or help to develop more consistent ways of working.

I just don't have time to plan my improvements!

A lot of people will tell me that part of the reason that their improvements fail is because they don't have time to come up with a proper plan.

However, what they are also implying is that they have time to work in an inefficient manner longer term.

That can't be right can it?

Do you give your team feedback about their improvement ideas?

One of the initial challenges surrounding continuous improvement is getting your teams to propose improvement ideas.

But, what happens when you get ideas that you can't implement immediately and you don't communicate effectively about the status of that idea?

Do you want to discuss on time delivery problems?

Just a quick reminder today...

If you have a LinkedIn account and want to discuss any on time delivery (improvement) issues, in a bid to generate ideas that you can apply to your business, then please feel free to join my group.
