Events and projects help you meet strategic goals. Manage them all in a single platform to accelerate progress and increase impact.
Align top-down and bottom-up improvement across your organization for powerful, cohesive strategy deployment. Pull in the same direction.
Organizations have traditionally used a hodgepodge approach to structuring their improvement management. Perhaps a company manages daily improvement with a physical Kaizen board that hangs on the wall. They send email updates about the board. They create a permanent record by taking pictures of the notecards and saving them in a shared file. They do the same with A3s and Value Stream Maps. They list and organize their improvements by file name in a spreadsheet, so they can search them later. They turn to project management software for larger initiatives and task management tools to manage little improvements. Every department has its own method. Some have even gone so far as to solicit the help of the IT department in building a SharePoint site.
Over time, this system will be called on to handle more ideas and implement more improvements than it can handle. They'll be unable to respond quickly enough, and their employees’ enthusiasm wanes quickly. Cross-functional collaboration becomes a joke, and a lack of standardization makes reporting and measuring the impact of improvement impossible. The percentage of ideas actually implemented drops because they can’t keep up with the tasks, the data, or the updates.
Empower cross-functional teams to collaborate regardless of time or distance. Give them insight into what their team is working on, store all data in a single location, and keep everyone in the loop with smart notifications.
