One of the Primary Reasons Why 80% of
Fail to Meet Expectations
One of the primary reasons would be failure to establish goals and expect-ations, track daily/weekly progress and carry out corrective actions if and when required. Determining motivational performance metrics, establishing Key Performance Indicators (KPI) to track performance, and establishing a Kaizen approach to continuous improvement is paramount to achieving positive, sustainable change initiative results.

"Bill is one of the most prolific individuals in the consulting industry and profession. He is a true thought leader and a great coach -- one of the best. His advice is golden and he has the respect of his colleagues worldwide. We all religiously read his articles and news-letters because they are informative, educa-tional and right on the mark."

The 7-Basics for Manufacturing Performance Measurement and the
Performance Score Card
1. The Strategic Plan: The strategic plan is the result of a business process that many companies employ to identify their critical success targets that set the course for future growth and profits. Lewis Carroll in “Alice in Wonderland” makes a good case for it: “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” said Alice. “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat. “I don’t much care where…,” said Alice. “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
Balanced Scorecard : Financial numbers may tell us we’re winning the war, but it takes a
balanced scorecard to focus our energy and efforts to win each of the battles along the way.
3. Overcoming Objections: Let’s not forget that we’re in the business of promoting improvements. There are many reasons why positive change is difficult, the most significant is all the objections and obstacles that are placed in the way of your progress. Don’t become a member of this negative force, they are the losers. Remember, there can be no status quo; if you are not gaining, then you are losing!
4. Information Integrity: Bottom line expectations will not be achieved when day-to-day production and business
processes are driven by inaccurate, untimely and uncontrolled data and/or documentation.
5. Team Dynamics: It is extremely important to understand that results gained from a
Performance Management Initiative will be in direct proportion to the amount of empowerment granted to self-directed work teams.
6. Structure and Deployment: There are three types of business managers: Those who track the score and know that they are winning the competitive battle…those who track the score and know that they are losing the competitive battle…and those who don’t track the score and are not even in the competitive battle.
Management: If your manufacturing team can handle only one strategic initiative at a time, then let it be the implementation of a “quick-hitting” kaizen
initiative. There just isn’t any other more important program in our pursuit of profits.

Another customer saying it even better than we can:
"Thank Bill for the "Free-be". I can already see where I can apply much of it to my office operation. By the way, I did not just buy the Training Library I bought the "Performance easurement Knowledge
Tutorial. The Training Library has been reviewed and re-reviewed many times already and many slides used to train some of my staff. Thanks for a great product."
What Everyone Ought to Know About Training
Why Do Most Training Options Fail
Because most training materials today are either:
* Adobe .pdf e-books with little or no effective graphics to
* PowerPoint presentations with no commentary to drive
home the “how to” of each slides
* Videos that deliver information at super speeds but with
* Seminars/webinars that present a lot of materials however
most attendee’s retention rate is less than 25% and relev-
ant, at-home implementation rarely get started.
Bill's "PowerPoint-Plus" training knowledge tutorials includes
powerful, PowerPoint charts and graphics, "plus" annotated note
pages with “how to make-it-happen” commentary and "lessons learned" by
a "been there, done that" manufacturing professional.
Our customers study the content, print
knowledge tutorial sections and highlight passages that are important to understanding how to successfully implement an effective performance
measurement system. The resultant blueprint is used for team direction, motivation and successful
E-books, PowerPoint presentations, videos, and seminars/webinars just don’t provide the same
Bill Gaw's Manufacturing Performance Management and Balanced
Scorecard Knowledge Tutorial
is an example of one the 356-PowerPoint
slides with its relevant note page:
Without data, you’re just another opinion. That
says it all. To continuously improve our
processes, we need to first learn how to capture
and then apply statistical data to our situation
analysis. This action is a primary requisite to
effective problem solving. Slide 3-3 presents an
overview of a
measurement by facts training program.
Lesson Learned: The more
that people use real time data to perform
situation analysis and to establish and track
corrective actions, the more comfortable and
effective they become at interpreting and
applying data-on-the-run. It is my
contention that exceptional leaders make quick
and quality decisions because they have mastered
the skill of interpreting data-on-the-run. To develop the ability to
apply the “test of reasonableness,” a
leader must first become an expert at
