Driving a program to improve business operations touches every aspect of the business and impacts many stakeholders in unforeseen ways. Communications and focus on the right operational areas in the right order are critical to achieving early success. Many factors can impact the success of such programs, such as:
- Availability of funding – Is the program fully funded? Is the program expected to generate incremental benefits to self fund?
- Cultural readiness – do your employees feel they are being targeted for layoffs? Are they pushing for the improvements?
- Technical readiness – are systems and equipment capable of supporting the vision? Are upgrades required or supported?
We can help to work through these and other questions to structure your program in a way that excites your employees and builds support for your initiatives while improving operating cash flow to support continuous improvement of your operations.
