What is Continuous Improvement?

An introduction to continuous improvement

This module introduces the critical role of Continuous Improvement in enabling firms to survive and thrive in ever more challenging regulatory and competitive environments.

We focus on:

  • Defining CI
  • Incremental v's Transformational
  • A look back at the history and evolution
  • The key components that underpin CI
  • CI models
  • Lean/Six Sigma/TQM/ISO 9000

Continuous Improvement: Define

This module is the first of five that introduce learners to the DMAIC approach to process improvement – an essential element of Continuous Improvement.

  • Starting with an overview of how process improvement can support and drive strategy deployment, learners will discover, using topical examples, how to identify where improvements might be made and prioritise to ensure maximum leverage on improvement spend
  • Attention then turns to the fundamentals of chartering a project and ensuring improvement activity is led by sound evidence

Continuous Improvement: Measure

This module introduces the second stage of DMAIC – measure – focusing on the vital techniques required to clarify the situation and quantify the problem.

  • Concentrating heavily on the process of achieving clarity and the key tools to support the process, learners will come away from this module with a methodology that can be applied in any number of situations.
  • Covers the different types of process mapping and tools such as Failure Modes and Effect Analysis using examples to illustrate the value of achieving a clear understanding of the ‘as is’ for both process improvement initiatives and more general business application.
