Continuous Improvement Strategy
Stop the bleeding by implementing a continuous improvement program focused on eliminating issues. Each individual will be required to participate and help manage change from reaction to prevention.
This means focusing resources on three parallel activities:
- “Capture low hanging fruit” by fixing issues at the shop floor to build momentum for the Continuous Improvement plan.
- Develop teams to improve business processes.
- Develop internal expertise to carry the program forward without external assistance.
