INTRODUCTION TO PROCESS IMPROVEMENT: A PROCESS IMPOVEMENT TRAINING IN THE PHILIPPINES

A Corporate EnterTrainment on Process Improvement

by Ed Flores, our partner trainer, speaker, and consultant

Overview:

Process Improvement is the proactive activity of improving existing business processes in an organization to achieve better efficiency (i.e. Cost) and effectiveness (i.e. Quality and Delivery). It involves a systematic approach which follows a specific methodology such as Lean Manufacturing, Kaizen, and Six Sigma that have different tools and techniques depending on the type of problem at hand. Processes can either be modified or complemented to achieve the desired goal.

Process Improvement is a continuous practice and should be supported by change management to sustain the gains. When executed successfully, the results can be measured in the improved product quality, customer satisfaction, customer loyalty, increased productivity, development of the skills of employees, reduced cost of operation, and overall increased profit.
