Internal Performance Improvement Teams
Regardless of industry segment or organization size, rapidly evolving new technologies, markets, and competitors have created a situation where unrelenting change is the one thing you can count on. And the stakes have never been higher, as your ability to compete and thrive depends upon how well you adapt and respond to change. As a result, organizations are recognizing that skillfully managing change is a competitive requirement and want to make sure that change management expertise is part of their organization’s skill set. Internal improvements like these are done in two ways: building performance improvement teams, enhancing the skills with their leaders and managers, and building new lean teams or departments (in part to reduce the need for outside consulting).
Carpedia’s methodology is based on transitioning skills and knowledge to local management so that changes are owned which helps make results more sustainable. Carpedia creates internal improvements through direct collaboration, ongoing coaching, case-based training and “on-the-floor” mentoring. Carpedia also supports and builds internal performance improvement teams and lean teams for organizations, helping shape how the teams are designed, staffed, trained, deployed, and held accountable for results.
To remain competitive, leading organizations understand that managing change must be a core capability of the organization, rather than just a project or program best practice. Instilling the drive for continued internal improvements in your organization and operationalizing its practice is critical, but companies struggle with how and where to begin. We regularly help our clients to assess these issues and determine the best way to structure and operate internal improvements—be it a centralized “lean teams” model or a more distributed approach.
