One of the Primary Reasons Why 80% of Lean Manufacturing Initiatives Fail to Meet Expectations

One of the primary reasons would be failure to establish goals and expectations, track daily/weekly progress and carry out corrective actions if and when required.

7-Basics for Manufacturing Performance Management

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.

2. The Performance (Balanced) Scorecard: Financial numbers may tell us we’re winning the war, but it takes a performance 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 Strategic Planning Program 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.

7. Kaizen 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 management program. 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 Management Training Package." 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."
