This material is from a talk I gave to SME CONNECT in San Diego on Wed, Sep 12, 2012. It was not recorded. Promotional copy:
More than 80% of improvement efforts fail to make a discernible difference in overall business performance, regardless of the improvement methodology in use. The reason isn’t a flaw in the methodologies, but a flaw inside of companies. Organizations in all sectors fail to meet their full potential because of self-inflicted chaos.
In this high energy session, Karen Martin will share her findings from more than 20 years of working with organizations of all types and sizes and offer practical how-to’s for preventing and eliminating organizational chaos. Specific topics will include:
• Why Lean, Six Sigma, and other improvement efforts don’t deliver the results you want and need.
• The four fundamental conditions for outstanding performance – and how their opposing conditions are preventing you from moving forward.
• How to instill clarity, focus, discipline and engagement into your organization’s DNA, enabling success!
You will leave the session armed with the know-how to build the organizational behaviors you need to achieve greatness.
