Change Management

Change management is a systematic approach to dealing with the transition or transformation of an organization’s goals, processes, or technologies.

Shifting to a Continuous Improvement Culture means that behaviors must change and time to do KAIZEN™ must be found. To adapt to and sustain change, every person must be involved at all levels of the organization.

The KAIZEN™ Change Model

To implement a KAIZEN™ Culture, organizations must focus their improvement efforts on four areas. This will allow them to improve teams, processes, and strategies.

Several factors prevent team leaders and natural teams from sustaining groundbreaking results from their improvement efforts. Some common obstacles include:

  • Underexposed KAIZEN™ Leaders
  • Too small or too wide span of control
  • No time for Improvement

Through the implementation of Daily KAIZEN™, we instill KAIZEN™ behaviors in all teams to develop a culture of continuous improvement and incrementally improve performance.

Process transformation can be a challenging road, given the number of variables that need to be considered when designing and implementing breakthrough initiatives.

Using state-of-the-art practices, we developed a framework to drive process improvement through projects and KAIZEN™ events.

With several projects running simultaneously, managers will benefit from routines that bring together all project leaders to discuss the improvement results and plan countermeasures when targets are not met.

Top management plays a key role in implementing and sustaining KAIZEN™ cultures. When managing an efficient organization, leaders should lead by example and should avoid mistakes like:

  • Underexposed top management
  • Lack of alignment between strategic planning and continuous improvement systems
  • Not calculating financial benefits

From the boardroom to the shop floor, we can help you improve every facet of your strategy. We guide organizations by building their path for growth via a premium strategy planning and execution framework.

It is well known that very few cultural change programs fully succeed.
This is due to several reasons, among them:

  • Lack of internal KAIZEN™ facilitators
  • Poor internal communication
  • Lack of a continuous improvement maturity model & evaluation

We rely on a solid framework to manage the complete social-technical transformation in a quick, professional, and integrated way. This approach will empower teams to integrate lean tools with social change management skills for developing comprehensive, successful Continuous Improvement & Excellency programs.
