What will lead you to higher productivity in 2015?
New products, new technologies, new structures?
For most organisations, the answer is none of these. Those that succeed in improving their productivity will do so by doing what they do now a little more effectively and/or efficiently. Big gains come from lots of small, incremental gains. Revolutions in productivity are rare.
So, start your structured, disciplined, comprehensive review of your operations today – and look for those areas where you can shave a bit off cycle times, waiting times, and waste.
