Why You Don’t Need to Work Twice as Hard for Process Improvement

Implementing a process improvement plan for your business can be a tough task to accomplish. There are numerous steps you must take to find processes that need work and many different aspects to consider. Below is a standard process improvement plan and ways that Grexo can help you to achieve it successfully.

 

Your Standard Process Improvement Plan

Work processes are developed for a particular purpose by doing tasks over and over again in the same fashion. Typically, many people within your organization already know how the workflow needs to be improved, yet have a hard time implementing it themselves without management or peer buy in. However, most companies fail to understand that implementing a process improvement plan should always be done for the consumer, not upper management.

 

Step One: Define

A process improvement plan should always start by defining a repeating operations – one with a beginning, middle, and end.

 

Step Two: Examine

Break the process down into as many steps as possible. Include every little detail, the more, the better. It may be necessary to ask your peers for input.

 

Step Three: Input

Request input from anyone involved in the process on what they think can improve efficiency. It may be simple or complex.

 

Step Four: Observe

Pay attention to your employees. Those who want to improve the process will start doing so naturally.

 

Step Five: Implement

Begin with the obvious parts of process improvement and start implementing change. You can use HR, automation, and step removal as resources.

 

Step Six: Repeat

Repeat the process on all of your workflows. Creating efficiency in your company will improve its net worth.
