Are you on the journey to world-class?
Are you on the journey to world-class? Do you want some short-cuts or perhaps some easy wins? – Read on…
Recently I heard someone say that the analysis required for the continuous improvement process was so boring that they just didn’t want to be part of it.
In fact, it’s not the first time I’ve heard people complaining about that; far from it.
The same individual was complimentary about being involved in the fun bits (designing and installing Visual Management systems and rolling his sleeves up to be part of a Workplace Organisation initiative) but did not want to be involved in any detailed analysis of data or root cause “that’s really not what I’m here to do”.
Unfortunately (or fortunately), world-class is a combination of some fun parts and some hard work. If you skimp on the detail you skimp on the results. The trick is to do the hard work only in the areas that matter. The other trick is to make sure everyone shares the same burning platform.
Intrigued by this attitude, I thought I’d research the opinions of several who can truly say they have achieved word class – see if you have gold in you and match the quotes with the photos.
