Step 3 : Turnaround Implementation : Implementing the action plan.
This is the real execution phase. In this phase the BE-PACT team is operating in parallel (effectively as a ‘shadow team’) with the company’s management. We don’t do it for them, rather the BE-PACT team supports, coaches and mentors management on site, assisting with the rapid implementation of the turnaround plan. Progress will be reviewed and measured against the KPIs. Elements in the implementation phase include:
· Strategy Deployment and Alignment
· Engagement of the Workforce
· Value Stream Mapping
· Execution of Actions and Projects
· Monitoring, Auditing, Assessments
· Regular Review sessions of projects and change
· Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) approach on processes, projects and organizational level
BE-PACT focuses on utilizing all the human potential within the organization. Often the change process requires fundamental changes in the company’s management process itself. Strategy alignment, Leadership and Behavior & Engagement are the basis of embedding Lean and creating a sustainable Lean transformation. The aim is to return to (or improve) profitability within a short period; typically the entire implementation plan covers a period of 1-2 years. After the implementation phase BE-PACT can conduct follow up assessments to evaluate the effectiveness of the company’s Lean processes.
In this third step cash is generated to provide the fuel for growth for the next phase: Business Development.
