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.
In this DVD, Bruce Hamilton and the GBMP team walk you through both the technical and people side of creating strategic and tactical alignment in your organization. Using the X-type Matrix as practice tool, Lean Policy Deployment (LPD) provides a step-by-step process for establishment of strategic and tactical plans, linking these to local improvement by teams and driving improvement to bottom and top line. In less than 30 minutes, key points for each critical step in the process are provided though a whimsical (and at times quite humorous), scenario-based journey through Anyorg, Inc., a fictitious enterprise whose management employs policy deployment to systematically drive and direct its lean journey. From three year goals to annual improvement priorities and A3 project plans to weekly team progress reports, LPD outlines the steps an organization must take to concretely establish “constancy of purpose” across departments and to every employee.
