What is needed to Get The Best Results From The Work We Do Around Operational Excellence?
Many organizations pursue an operational excellence program by beginning to work on specific improvement efforts, but are not satisfied with the results they get from their efforts. Pursuing individual improvements without thinking about the broader strategy consistently leads to sub-optimal results. People get individual project results and that is helpful to the company, but they struggle to maintain the gains or to have any success outside of the immediate project efforts. Too many excellent process changes degrade quickly, leaving people wondering what happened.
Thinking strategically about all that is required for true Operational Excellence across an organization can be a challenging task. What is operational excellence strategy? It includes ongoing efforts around understanding the customers, creating strategic alignment to get the organization or group as a whole working at common purpose, building the problem solving muscle of people across the group, and thinking and acting intentionally to create a culture of improvement.
