STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Improvement Plan Operations Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 909 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Improvement Plan Operations improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 909 standard requirements:

  1. IT organizations are often challenged to reduce their overheads and operational costs. Cost reduction initiatives can be difficult to manage and it is essential to target the right areas. Where can costs reasonably be reduced or margins improved without any service disruption or without affecting service levels?

  2. Strategic cost management is intended to focus managers on identifying the relevant cost drivers and on the relationship among those cost drivers throughout the manufacturing process. Is the conventional focus on the question, which products are most profitable?

  3. What is it that newly appointed heads do, how does that differ from what business managers do and can an alternative model of excellence be constructed that reflects, rather than restrains, your perception of effective practice?

  4. From a high level, the value and efficiencies of integrated CPM and GRC are clear. But business happens at the level of detail. How does an integrated approach improve your day-to-day operations?

  5. DevOps needs both a strong definition and a set of standard success measures, but how does your organization measure ñimproved cooperation between development and operationsî or ñalignmentî?

  6. Think about management in a conventional mass production operation. First and foremost, the focus is on results, on hitting the numbers: Did you meet the schedule for this day or this week?

  7. What about long-term initiatives (e.g., product or process innovation) that may ultimately save the enterprise and that may end up being short-changed by the continuous improvement mindset?

  8. Will the operator have any responsibility for improving the billing system with respect to improving the metering of the power distributed (i.e., dealing with administrative losses)?

  9. No matter what your mission, a more digital approach to organizational processes will improve operations in dramatic and easily measured ways. What matters most to your organization?

  10. How does your organization bridge the gap from simply being an error-free organization to becoming a consistently high-performing organization that approaches operational excellence?
