Methodology – Overview


World-class competitiveness is the result of an organisation’s ability to provide quality products or services, faster and more cost effectively than competitors. According to research world-wide on industrial productivity, world-class organisations across the globe apply the following key strategies, they:

  • Focus on simultaneous improvement of quality, speed and cost effectiveness.
  • Establish close links with customers and suppliers. Drive both linear, continuous improvement (Kaizen) as well as non-linear break-through improvements in the work place.
  • Eliminate all forms of waste and make value flow, as pulled by the customer.
  • Apply leadership practices that promote teamwork, continuous learning, participation and flexibility.

The Mission-directed Work Team programme is designed to translate these key strategies and principles into meaningful practices that can be implemented throughout an organisation.

The program is line-driven and provides leaders and their teams with skills to benchmark themselves against recognised world-best practices thereby identifying and exploiting opportunities for improvement.

The programme transforms the front-line of an organisation into a productive, participative environment, thereby providing a sense of purpose for people in their place of work. This is achieved by first introducing management to the programme in order to ensure that a supportive environment exist in the organisation. Management has a critical role to play both as coach and as master coach.

This is followed by team leader training in the tools and techniques needed to transform the workplace. The team leader is the leader of a “mini-business”, it is here where the success of a workplace transformation initiative is determined.
