One of our Associates, Stuart Swalwell, recently spent some time in Los Angeles with Bill Bellows, Associate Fellow at Pratt and Whitney Rocketdyne and Leader of Enterprise Thinking, and is now drafting a paper outlining the differences between the Statius product, Optimisation 3D™, and Six Sigma. In a sentence, Six Sigma is a set of tools and techniques that concentrate on meeting specifications whilst Optimisation 3D™ focuses on the continuous improvement of the organisation as a whole so that customers remain delighted by the products or services they receive. It is hoped the final paper will be published towards the end of the year.
A number of complementary sister papers detailing Statius thinking are also in the final draft stage and, once agreed, they will all appear on a new section of the web site under the banner “Management Matters: Briefing Papers”.
If you would like advanced final draft copies on the following subjects, please feel free to contact us on 020 8460 3345 or email Mark Woods at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since the invention of management over a century ago, management has become detached from both the day to day operation of the organisation and from delivering value to the customers who pay for the products and services provided. Conventional wisdom is that managers set targets and then create systems to monitor, measure and control the execution of these targets. These systems include budgets, performance management, incentives and appraisals which are used to exercise control and ensure that targets are met. Simple, obvious and wrong!
We need a change in management thinking.
The aim of this blog is to therefore challenge the way in which we currently think about management, hopefully slaying some of the myths that surround it.
