Continuous improvement is an ongoing effort to improve all elements of an organization such as processes, tools, products, and services, etc. The improvements can be small and incremental, or they can be more breakthrough in nature. One of the key issues to grasp is that this is an “ongoing” process so it should be part of the DNA of your company not just an activity that your organization undertakes. The most successful organizations can instill a culture of continuous improvement.
Today’s we will not only talk all about continuous improvement, I will also review the more interesting and engaging ways in which you can make this part of your culture and staff mindset. After all Continuous Improvement is an ongoing, consistent effort to improve products, processes, or services, and the reason we are focussing on it is because it reduces waste and increases quality in a business, while also having the opportunity to fully engage your staff and take your business to the maximum level of success.
Sometimes Continuous Improvement may be a “bad-rap” as being just another process where people are going to critique my department or my work. The key is to tie the Continuous Improvement process to business needs. The continuous effort can drive a competitive advantage for organizations that get it right.
