In order for companies to achieve their goals, teams should know their critical processes that are linked to their goals and KPIs.

In the meantime, we teach teams how to come up with CI ideas, how to use the CI board to collect ideas and how to make decision on the new ideas. The decision whether to accept or reject the idea as a team. We teach the team, when they decide to accept the idea, how to categorize the idea and which CI initiative would most suite and fit this idea.

If all the teams will acquire the above mentioned capabilities of the CI foundations beside individuals building capabilities, then the organization can climb in the lean transformation ladder to a higher lean maturity levels.

To implement the CI Foundations for each team, it takes about 6 months. We usually do this implementation in parallel for selected teams. The organization lean transformation journey duration depends on the size of the organization and the number of teams the organization has.
