  How to Achieve Continuous Improvement

The key steps that need to be taken to ensure that Kaizen (continuous improvement) is part of your teams every day working lives

How to create the culture for staff to feel valued, and encouraged to come up with ideas for improvement in systems, processes and procedures, in order to improve productivity and create a more customer focused environment.

Aims of the seminar:

Whether starting from a low point, or not, every organisation can find ways to improve its performance. This programme will help you identify where improvements can be made and provide an understanding of how to implement them – continuously.

Two simple words, continuous improvement, are what most organisations are looking to achieve. So why is it that when suggestion schemes are introduced, or management say they would like staff to come up with ideas for improvement, that the initiative is not sustained? In many cases, failure occurs because the fundamental culture of the organisation has not changed.

A true values and cultural shift supported by the concept of Kaizen (continuous improvement) is required to make people feel really valued and supported so that they want to give more in terms of creativity and ongoing pro-active problem solving.

You will also take away with you a Cultural Auditing Tool in order to assess and evaluate how staff view your organisation and capture their ideas for improvement.

During this programme we will explore:

  • How to create a more creative and committed workforce

  • What are the changes you need to make in the values and culture of your organisation?

  • Working towards a “no blame” culture and breaking down interdepartmental barriers.

  • How to identify accurately where improvement is required and how to apply it

  • The use of Kaizen (continuous improvement) as part of an everyday activity to pro-actively problem solving

Who will benefit?

Managers, Directors, Team and Project Leaders & Supervisors
