Many improvement opportunities in an organisation are smaller scale exercises where teams can quickly deliver small step improvement bringing process performance closer to the intended strategy for the organisation.
The workshop on Rapid Improvement Methods helps teams or individuals learn how to conduct such improvement projects in a shorter time frame. These projects are often:
• Simpler to plan since the problem and scope is less complex,
• Are more likely to use Lean analysis techniques,
• Use solutions that are more obvious, logical, intuitive and visual.
• Shorter in duration – between a week or so to about 90 days.
It may be that a large performance improvement can be gained from dealing with ‘low hanging fruit!
