Do you feel like there is never enough hours in the day? Are your customers frustrated? Are deliveries late or orders fulfilled incorrectly ? Is product or service quality not where it should be?
If your company is experiencing any or all of these types of issues, you’re not unique! Every organization is suffering with these same issues. In fact, many businesses have far more problems, than they people with the available time and skill to deal with them.
So, what differentiates a successful company from one that is not so successful? It is their ability to see problems as “opportunities for improvement.” Problems are signals that something is not working as it should. These signals provide feedback from your business processes. A successful company uses these signals or feedback to drive their continuous improvement by using problem solving to identify and eliminate the root cause(s). On the other hand, a not so successful company will push and work harder to get around the problem. They will try to fire-fight their way out of the problem! They truly believe that they cannot take the time to isolate the root cause(s) of their problem(s).
Here is one of the best quotes that explains how short shortsighted this type of thinking is:
If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over? – John Wooden
What is the easiest and cost effective way for a company to establish a problem solving focus? They get their employees to participate in lean office training and certification courses.
Lean Office training is one of the best ways to introduce, develop and establish problem solving into any administration or service organization. It’s the easiest way to teach basic problem solving skills to your employees, and it has a proven record as being one of the most effective methods for improving all business processes!
Forward thinking business owners and managers understand that the best and most cost effective problem solvers in any organization are its employees. Why is this? Well, it’s because an employee is working, and experiencing the same frustrating issues, day in, day out. Your employees are connected to your customers, however, in most organizations they have little to no input into how to improve the system they use to fulfill the needs of the customer. Your employees have critical process information, and it’s important to capture this knowledge to help identify and resolve many of your re-occurring problems! How do you achieve this?
What your employees need is the right forum to be able to share their insights. To do this successfully, they need some basic lean office training and an environment that allows them to improve their own workplace. An empowered workforce will improve productivity and increase value for the organization, and its customers.
