Managing for daily improvement invites teams to regularly discuss and act on ideas to improve processes, systems, and outcomes.
By participating in regular improvement huddles, teams are engaging in sharing ideas, evaluating priorities, executing tactics, and monitoring improvements being made within the team’s scope of work. These improvements, although small and incremental, add up to tremendous efficiencies as the team seeks to get better every single day. By continuously identifying and addressing process barriers and inefficiencies teams will benefit from faster, more effective and easier to use processes.
The primary advantage of daily improvement is that it makes clear what success looks like, allowing teams to see when a problem exists. This allows for rapid and frequent course corrections in operations as the team takes ownership of addressing the gaps between where their current performance is and where it needs to be.
