Where Process-improvement Projects Go Wrong WSJ January 25, 2010

  1. "...extended involvement of ...expert is required if teams are to remain motivated, continue learning and maintain gains.
  2. ...performance appraisal need to be tied to successful implementation of improvement projects.
  3. 3. improvement teams should have no more than six to nine members, and timelines for launching a project should be no longer than six to eight weeks.  .... bigger teams ...greater chance of members will have competing interests and harder it will be for them to agree on goals...longer it takes to implement improvements, the greater the change people and resources will be diverted to other efforts
  4. executives need to directly participate in improvement projects, not just "support" them."
