WHAT IF YOU COULD HAVE A WORKFORCE THAT DOESN’T DRIVE YOU INSANE?
Definition of insanity!
A well-known definition of insanity reads “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. It must therefore have been a chain of events that was leading someone close to insanity to coin the industry buzzword known as continuous improvement.
It almost seems too simple, continuously improving your business, processes, and way of working. How you go about studying, implementing and evolving that improvement is where it gets more complicated. You need to encourage a philosophy of constant, logical and sustainable improvement throughout your organisation which allows for it to go beyond a slogan on a poster.
In today’s world we have improvement teams all over the organisation, focused on productivity and working smarter. We pay companies to come and review our processes and set us up on a new path towards increased efficiencies. All of it…costing us more and more money. Yet if we look a little closer, the answer is right in front of our eyes.
The notion to always strive to do our job better has existed since the beginning of mankind. The caveman, struggling to catch food with his hands, soon realised that a stick would give him a longer reach and a better chance. Throwing the stick gave an even better range and improved his odds of catching his prey and adding a sharp stone to the end of the stick meant even greater success. It just comes naturally to some people and those people can be found within your own workforce.
With the right tools and the correct methodologies, your own people can fundamentally change your organisation’s operational results and significantly increase productivity and profitability. They can look at where you are today, setting a goal and doing what needs to be done to reach the goal.
