"Don't be so open minded that your brain falls out."
- Bill, Specifically in relation to medium sized manufacturing operations, I
have run a series of workshops based on Deming's 'knowledge management'
approach to CPI. (Deming did KM before it was known as such.)
One of the topics is the CoP vs Kaizen Team. See below. These types of
company tend to eschew nice academic labels but the way we have approached
knowledge sharing (with a view to control of a process - any process) is by
setting up CoPs around knowledge content, tools and techniques for CPI. Same
approach to 6 Sigma implementation.
Contact me directly for more info.
Our course outline for:
Continuous Performance Improvement: Principles and Techniques.
The Roots and Philosophy of Continuous Improvement. (Deming's philosphy)
Knowing the System (Process) for Improvement
The more you know the more you are in control.(Learning to produce a cake.)
Quality Circles, Kaizen Teams, Communities of Practice, and their
Quality circles and creativity
