Performance Project Design
Process businesses invest in a myriad of Operations Excellence initiatives. These range from encouraging informal improvement teams through to investing in extensive systems underpinned by traditional improvement frameworks such as Lean, Six Sigma or Total Production Maintenance (TPM).
After an initial upswing in performance (usually from engagement and coordination), results flatten out and it gets harder to link the increased change activity with a tangible increase in business performance.
The weakness with traditional improvement frameworks is that they produced many, unprioritised activities which load precious resources without a clear link to business benefits. The Bullant framework identifies Performance-Centred Improvements that deliver tangible, metric-based, business improvements that can be incorporated into a single Performance Project. The existing Operations Excellence system can then be used to coordinate resources effectively.
