Dr. Dino Petrarolo
Leading Continuous Improvement Authority

Topic:

The Progression of Organizational Performance Improvement as Best Practices Mature — An Analysis over Time in a Large Global Organization

The application of integrated best practices should result in sustained organizational performance improvement — both financial and non-financial. There are many short-term benefits and if organizations follow the change process diligently, it is not uncommon to achieve a doubling of productivity and/or double-digit percentage improvements in use, efficiency, lead time or quality measures over three year periods.

This presentation will demonstrate how performance measures can be tracked relative to best practice dimensions, thereby providing the organization with key insights into the systemic improvement and change process.
