We help our clients develop their vision, ensuring there are clear goals to be achieved. There are a number of factors which need to be considered in the design of a Continuous Improvement Team:
- Establish design principles for the team
- Agree the architecture of the team
- Roles & Responsibilities
- Management Practices
- Reporting, KPI’s and Metrics
- Team charter and ways of working
We leverage the proven ‘Plan, Do, Check, Act’ cycle as a simple and effective model for Continuous Improvement. Along with this we employ lean and agile concepts to create fit for purpose approach for our clients.
All too often, CI methods and practices are set up with little consideration for the importance of establishing a CI Culture. Without focusing on this aspect of CI, the process is likely to fail once the initiation project completes. Creating and sustaining CI requires leadership support and we work with our clients to ensure CI remains top of the leadership agenda.
