Are you struggling to keep your people committed to the CI vision?

Continuous improvement (CI) is not a project: It is a culture change embedded in the DNA of any world-class manufacturing organization striving for excellence. Initial CI activities may include project-based activities, but CI doesn’t stop once short-term improvement objectives have been achieved. Although these initial activities should encourage employee engagement, the real challenge comes later – when interest in CI activities often begins to wane.

Understanding the long-term benefits of CI helps to inspire people to achieve a sustainable CI strategy.
