Continual Improvement of Your Management System

All management systems must have processes for continual improvement to sustain success. Developed, effective management systems must continually improve or they slowly deteriorate - often before people realize that a problem exists. Regardless of the management fad the organization has chosen for that month, continual improvement always involves two things (see step nine of the system development grid.

  • Redefining process and system objectives
  • Redesigning processes and the system to meet these objectives

Common techniques used today include lean six sigma, business process analysis and various other quality management techniques. Any approach applied well (with top management commitment, organizational learning, discipline and perseverance) will succeed; any approach applied poorly will fail. The particular tools used depend upon what the organization wants to accomplish. Regardless, all improvement initiatives are founded in items 1 and 2 above.
