Have you faced this situation? Do you have a burning platform?
- Your sales improvements are not reflecting in the financial health of your operation
- Your team members don’t communicate and there are no collaboration spaces
- The long hours spent do not reflect an improvement in these conditions
- Your team loses focus and motivation when you’re not around
- All is urgent and due yesterday
Without having a burning platform, there is seldom a motivation to implement a continuous improvement initiative. Company leadership should recognize the burning platform, and understand how Lean Six Sigma can address the problems and help them in the transformation journey. Leaders should recognize the need for change.
