Strategy Deployment relies on consistent action in between planning periods and your strategy requires a commitment to continuous improvement. There are a number of tools you can use as you transform your organization into the optimal state you desire.
Here are some of the best tools to propel your strategy.
The Value Stream Analysis is a review of all of the processes that help you develop your product or service.
Kaizen and rapid process improvement activities help you to get results fast by discovering a problem, making a fast review of it and determining some improvements you can trial.
An A3 is a structured problem solving approach to improve a process in one stop shopping.
Continuous daily improvements or daily start planning gets each day off to a start with your overall strategy in mind before the day becomes filled with non strategic activities.
Using the four of these together you can determine which processes need improvement (Value Stream Analysis), hold a rapid improvement event (Kaizen), develop an 11 x 17 roadmap to improve it (A3), and review your plan to meet your goals daily (Continuous daily improvements).
Keeping focus on your strategy is the best way to meet your goals.
