    • 22. Our Barrier Identification and Removal Techniques Accelerate Gap Closure and Performance Improvement Barriers (subject matter, business process, Culture Barriers cultural) are complex and interrelated 2 1 Teams must remove barriers to improve Work- performance. Culture barriers are toughest Business Process 3 Arounds but provide the highest return Barriers 2 2 Subject Work-arounds grow due to barriers and can 1 Matter add permanent cost. They must be dismantled when barriers are removed. Barrier to Subject Matter Business Process Culture Desired Performance Barrier Cultural Barriers: Removal 1X 10 X 100 X hardest but greatest Impact returns © OPS Rules Partners, LLC 2012
