10 Mistakes to Avoid When Implementing a Continuous Improvement Plan
The Need for Continuous Improvement
Change is a given in every organization. Leadership changes, generations of workers come and go and technology evolves to accommodate the times. Work processes also need to evolve as the markets they serve change — otherwise, organizations risk losing their competitive edge, or worse, becoming obsolete.
In order to keep processes as current as your industry demands, continuous improvement (CI) should be an ever-present pillar of your organization. Ongoing employee training, problem-solving protocol and even conflict resolution tactics should all be components of your operations — day-to-day and year-to-year.
