Recently, I was contacted to explore the idea of a different type of learning experience that would assist learners with integrating a number of continuous improvement concepts together for better implementation.
Since then, we’ve had a series of conversations amongst several subject matter experts in the fields of TWI, standard work, daily management, different problem solving methodologies, and a coaching style of leadership.
As we’ve had these discussions, it strikes me that it’s really hard for implementers of continuous improvement to figure out the implementation of so many concepts (especially across a large scale environment).
Part of the challenge seems to come from various thought leaders that as a matter of practice teach concepts separately and generally speak to how one concept connects to others. In addition, conferences that provide a breadth of information that can be difficult to implement.
I’m curious to find out how other organizations have gone about establishing their operating systems and combining several improvement concepts in a cohesive manner at various levels of leadership. Is it the problem that it looks to be?
If you could advise the community related to any type of continuous improvement on how to better integrate concepts, what would it be?
