Jeff Williams podcast:
In the interview Jeff explains the importance of having an ‘end to end’ system in place in order to sustain business excellence in an organisation. In Jeff’s many years of experience, visiting many organisations, the usual approach he’s found is that they only implement snippets of improvement, such as tools and techniques, visual boards and problem solving etc.
But when he asks the question, ‘show me the end to end system, thats driven by targets, visual management, boards etc’ that end to end system is usually missing.
Jeff goes on to explain that engaging the shop floor in the continuous improvement process is critical to its long term success.
