Couple of days back there was an announcement in our office that each team will be given a very big White Boards. This is called Kai-zen Whiteboards.
Well before I Proceed I would like give a brief idea on Kai-zen. Its means Change for Good.
It is the practice of continuous improvement. Kaizen was originally introduced to the West by Masaaki Imai in his book Kai-zen: The Key to Japan’s Competitive Success in 1986.
Now all we got to do is come up with our own format which gives a quantitative outlook of our performance each day.
We provide technical solutions to our customers and what we could think of is how many:
- Issues are resolved??
- Under progress
- Pending for Customer Updates
So now this will clearly give you facts and figures on the service we provide.
But idea behind this is to increase productivity. Now I don’t know how much this is going to help us increase productivity
There are multiple teams around us and I believe this is not to showcase it to many but to analyze own performance.
So I came up with 2 other sections which like
- Improvements and other priorities
People came for an audit and found many have a similar template and I came up with my priority matrix
And quotes for the day .:
“5 little goals done a day lead to 1850 goals achieved end of the year”
Somehow it can be an advantage or time consuming things. So what do you guys think ??
