Â Everyone knows that in order to reach optimum levels of health, you have to exerciseâand that you have to keep at it, day after day after day. No big secret here.Â Â
Itâs the same with process improvement, and, specifically, lean processes. Everything there is to know about Lean has been revealed. Countless books, articles, and seminars provide business leaders all the information they need to understand how lean works and how effective it can be when fully implemented. Again, not a secret. Why, then, do companies invariably fail in their pursuit of operational excellence?
The same reason people fail to trim fat through exercise. They donât do it. They try to squeeze it into their schedule; they donât make it part of their schedule. And, inevitably, it becomes less of a priority. In the same vein, too many business leaders see process improvement as a project, something separate from the more âpressingâ goals of profits and growth.Â
Thatâs where they go wrong. And thatâs where Building the Fit Organization comes in.
In this practical, hands-on guide Markovitz walks you step by step through the process of making lean as intrinsic to your company as the pursuit of profits. You will learn how to make an unshakeable commitment to increasing the value provided by doing the right work in the right way with continuous monitoring of processes and structured coaching for everyone.Â
You donât need another book about lean. What you need to learn is how to make process improvement your companyâs purpose.
Like a serious athlete, youâre warmed up. You know what lean is and how it can help your organization. Now itâs time to perform. Building the Fit Organization is the next step to creating a company that can compete on the toughest of playing fields.
