“There’s no such thing as the unknown – only things temporarily hidden.”
— James T. Kirk
Let’s Face It
Performance improvements can be hard to find. Particularly when you have to deliver them year after year. And the need for these improvements is not optional. The march of your competitors is relentless and increasing in pace.
At SBTI we look at the discipline of performance improvement. We view it through two very different, but complementary lenses.
What Are The Options?
OPTION #1: Continuous Improvement
Likely you will have dedicated resources devoted to these activities. We upskill members of these teams. We help them identify more significant benefits. We arm them with the tools and capabilities to deliver and sustain them.
OPTION #2: Discontinuous Improvement or Step Change.
Step change involves improvement efforts that are multi-disciplinary, cross functional and complex. They span organizational and company boundaries and must transcend political fiefdoms.
What’s The Result?
We live in an era of unprecendented change. The pace at which your products, services and processes are becoming obsolete and irrelevant is increasing. Continuous improvement efforts along will not protect your competitiveness.
Step change involves improvement efforts that are multi-disciplinary, cross-functional and complex. They span organizational and company boundaries and must transcend political fiefdoms.
How Can We Help?
SBTI identifies these step change opportunities. We combine it with a powerful change management capability to ensure their delivery. Let’s talk and let us show you how we can help build a discontinuous improvement capability.
