Training a culture of continuous improvement
January 22, 2014 Leave a comment
So, I’m faced with a interesting challenge. How do you evolve a quality training program to develop a culture of continuous improvement?
Providing more of what isn’t working doesn’t seem like a logical approach. If you’ve been training yellow belts, green belts, and black belts, but it’s not having much effect, will more of the same type of training help?
Has anyone had success in this area?
If you want to train leadership, do you train them the same way? Won’t it be just as ineffective? Is there a method of giving them a demonstrated training approach that they could replicate and pass down that contains the burning platform, an overview of methodologies that can be trained to masses, engagement with literature discussion, and tours of quality and non quality organizations? Ideas?
Would you hold simple stand alone training and pull everyone out of their work centers or inculcate your message in all the current organizational and culture training programs? Or both?
Definitely a quandary and would love to hear your thoughts?
