Fremont, California (PressExposure) September 03, 2013 -- Description:
The plethora of improvement technology design and project management methodology tools and kits available in the market has ensured that if one does not choose the right one -meaning one that addresses the organization's needs best -the entire purpose gets defeated. Far from improving methodology, the inappropriate one ends up giving the exact opposite result.
To avoid this, organizations need to ponder over important questions such as: what is a methodology; rather, what is a good one? What is its importance to performance improvement? In circumstances where there are competing methodologies; these questions assume greater importance, because the person choosing the improvement technology design tools and kits may be asked those same questions from the management at some point.
This webinar will offer insights about which process to adapt to arrive at the "right" improvement methodology. The benefits of getting this right are many:
-There is planned improvement;
-Many people in the organization stand to benefit from this;
-The benefits will be spread across more sectors and projects in the organization;
-It will lead to more predictable results, and
-Will help cut down costs as there is less uncertainty and reinvestment in the processes.
This webinar will help participants identify the best suited process for their organizations. It will cover the following areas:
-Definition of an effective, complete improvement methodology
-Major components of an effective, complete improvement methodology
-Benefits of employing an effective methodology
-Definitions & Examples
-How They Can Masquerade as Methodologies
-Review of Existing Methodologies & Non-Methodologies
-How to Build or Enhance Your Own Methodology
