Implementation Strategies

There’s really a variety of choices depending on the size of the organization and the amount of support or time set aside to work on improvements.

People make successful what whey help create.

If you can form a team with a leader, facilitator, and sponsor, this is the best way to insure that you get involvement and committment.  Often lean improvements are done in a week using a team (kaizan.)  Six Sigma/problem solving projects often use a team but are spread out over the course of weeks or months.  The downside to this approach is that you need to be able to make the resources available and the issue you are working on better be worth this level of effort.

Some organizations will use an outside consultant or internal resouce to look for opportunities and help implement changes.  This works well if the problem is isolatedf or you can’t free up resources to work together on a team.  The risk is that this consultant or resource needs to have both strong interpersonal and analytical skills and be in an organization that person a lot of authority to recommend if not approve the changes.

If you are a small organization or department, you may choose to go to a class or read a book and make changes that are within your control.  There is some risk that you make your department better but have a negative impact somewhere else.
