This blog post is part one of a three-part series.
Last week I had the privilege of speaking to a group of Continuous Improvement and Operations Leaders at the Generis American Manufacturing Summit in Chicago. The topic was “How to Ensure ROI from Your Continuous Improvement Approach,” which is one that I’ve written about previously but had not delivered to a live audience until last week.
Phase 5 Group’s goal any time that we interject our experience and insights into the larger discussion of all things continuous improvement related is to sincerely attempt to provide a unique perspective or otherwise get folks thinking about these issues differently. One way that we did that at last week’s conference was to share our view on how to manage the investment in a broad-based deployment without sacrificing on deployment pace or quality of outcomes. The next three blog posts (including this one) are dedicated to articulating that view by looking at two “traditional” CI deployment models and then comparing them to a third model that we believe offers the best of all worlds so to speak.
