Most improvement initiatives do fail for he following reasons:
- There is a glorious announcement, which you are going to implement change. You have set up a small team of "experts", that is going to lead all the change initiatives and of course everything
will be better afterwards.
- It is tried to implement solutions (too fast and to many), e.g. solutions presented in books or which may have worked in other companies. The consequence is, that your employees won´t get
involved and co-create actively. They will be diminished to implement "other people´s" solutions.
- Your employees will be overloaded with "alien language", mostly Japanese words. This comes across in a very strange way and will definitely not support the understanding of the new approach.
- A wrong top down approach, which is driven mainly as a cost reduction program, with a too high pressure on conformity, with rigid project plans and with to many and wrong KPIs. Speed is more
important then sustainability.
- There is no consensus in your management team about the What, How, When, Where and Who.
- There is no holistic allignment and activities are not synchronized. You start one pilot project and then you start the next one. You start a infinite loop of workshops and do concentrate only on
one business area (in the past always production).
