Many organizations have discovered the benefits of Lean management system practices, ranging from Strategy Deployment in the boardroom (and on down the organization) and Lean Daily Management practices at the front lines (and on up).
In our zeal to reduce waste in the actual work, how often are we introducing additional waste through our management practices? Too often, in the varied experience of our webinar presenter, Mark Graban. Reacting to every up and down in a metric or demanding a root cause explanation for every below average data point (or any data point that doesn’t hit a target) might be consuming time that would be better spent actually improving the system that generates your results.
In this webinar, you’ll learn practical tips and methods for being more effective in your Lean improvement efforts, including:
• Why two data points are not a trend (except for the few cases when they are)
• Why Run Charts or, better yet, “Process Behavior Charts” are far more helpful than red/green color-coded tables of numbers, a.k.a. “Bowling Charts”
• How to create a Process Behavior Chart for a metric
• How to use a Process Behavior Chart over time to separate “signal” from “noise,” which shows you when to react and look for a root cause for that last data point – and when to step back and improve more systematically
Mark will share lessons from his new book, Measures of Success: React Less, Lead Better, Improve More. Less
