Every organization has one and it is in plain sight

The path to process improvement is paved in transformation not transaction approaches

What is your view of your world? I know it sounds like a strange question but hear me out. The vast majority of HR consists of responding to HR challenges in a transactional mode. The issue fire make sits presence known and you respond to it and then mov eon to the next fire. That is how HR has been since the early days at National Cash Register. Here is the problem however. Approaching the need to continuously improve the organizational problems in a transactional mode gets you nowhere. We…See More

Change your process map to a journey map- start with the client process before yours

Today's change maestro's management tip looks at another view of the continuous process improvement effort in your organization. We need to look at the very essence of the process. One of the initial tools in process improvement s the creation of a process map. It is used to track the various steps in the process so we can better understand the entire process.

When considering your future state of a process let your mind look at all the possibilities

Hey I get it! In normal circumstances when we are confronted with a problem we rely on our past experiences to find solutions to those problems. In doing so you may very well be cheating your customers. Design thinking tells us to ask two initial questions: what is and what if? What is clearly loos at what problem is being presented to the organization. What is holding up the delivery of demands or the customer base? What are we doing that is causing the problem?The what if proposition opens…See More

The Change Maestro's Management Tip - When offering solutions to improvement issues, think out of your comfort zone

As Daniel Kahneman suggests in his book Thinking Fast and Slow, the human mind tends to take the easiest path when trying to resolve issues and make a decision. This never more true when we are trying to solve process problems.When your organization is faced with these problems the tendency is to either claim that there is no problem or decide that this problem is similar to a previous problem and so you select the same resolution even if it is not a good match.Francesca Gino in the…See More

In order to bring about true continuous process improvement you need to get out of your comfort zone and look at the real world.

In our book Reality, Perception and your Workplace Culture I discussed this point in detail. It becomes a case of looking at the world from the image in the mirror or looking at the world from what you see looking out the window.To bring about genuine process improvement you need to be able to see the world from the point of view of the customer. Your customer sees the world as having a problem and it directly effects how they interact with you. Your responsibility is to see the world as they…See More

Work always flows horizontally not Vertically

Many organizations believe that the most effective way to run an organization is to construct the flow of information from the top down. This leads to an environment of silos. The problem is that silo is not the way the processes flow. They are constructed in a chain with each link of the chain feeding the next one.All processes begin with the creator of the component of the end product or service which when combined with other components result in the product or service which you deliver to…See More
