Managing Improvement

Most business units are so busy with ongoing work and projects that time is not taken to “talk about improvement.”  A manager, who desires to build the best team, would do well to seek constructive feedback and ideas from the team.  This should be a purposeful but very open discussion.  There are several key topics for discussion plus any team specific items a manager may want to review.

5 Skills for Managing Improvement

  1. What specific thing(s) can we do to get even better at execution?
  2. How do you feel about the communications around projects and assignments?
  3. Is our “check-up” status report approach working?
  4. Have our Project Action Plans been well organized and coordinated?
  5. Has business Unit teamwork been effective?  If not, how can we improve?

This review process can be done several times a year or after completion of an important project or assignment.  The point is to have open and candid discussions on getting better.  the very fact that a manager or executive is willing to do this will increase the culture on productivity.
