Most organizations can develop a long list of things of things that are either broken or in need of improvement. It’s not so easy to decide, however, which to do first, and which to put aside. Policy deployment is about surfacing and prioritizing the many improvements you could make to a short doable list. It’s also about linking your strategy to tactical plans and even daily activities and creating a balance between daily work and improvement. And it’s about sharing and aligning your scarce resources to achieve more improvement faster and avoid project overload. Policy deployment will provide a roadmap for your lean implementation and assure that goals are supported by means and that your organization’s vision for the future is understood by all and is not just management’s wishful thinking.
