The approach I use, maximizes the 'people' component of improvement through focusing on the front end of improvement work. The steps of Understand, Set, Engage, Refine, and Sustain are used in tandem to create a truly People-Centric Improvement methodology designed to increase initial buy-in and, in turn, increase sustainment. 'Spread the Lean Love,' really means that I will help enable an organizations' people to live better lives through learning Lean/Continuous Improvement thinking... 'Helping People Help Themselves!'
Organizations are being held to higher standards than ever in terms of how they work with their people. This brings added challenges to improvement work and change management. The Buy-In = Sustainment Framework can help organizations realize the case for change and obtain commitment from their people through how they interact, support, and work with them to garner better results. I help connect the purpose of improvement work and as a result, you build a 'tailored-to-you' business system where people buy-in, improvements are sustained, and everyone is happy!
