ASQ Merrimack Valley December Section Meeting - Conflict is the Root of All Waste

 

Conflict is the Root of All Waste

 

Presented By Scott Gauvin

 

When companies tackle CI, they typically do so with the physical implications of waste in mind: Inventory, space, materials, time and human capital. But an insidious waste undermines value even more significantly and pervasively: Unresolved conflict.

Lean and Six Sigma methodologies both hinge on getting to the root cause of an issue as a means of addressing performance. Generally speaking this approach reveals significant opportunities to improve productivity by way of more streamlined processes.

Sooner or later, however, the same issues Continuous Improvement (CI) initiatives were implemented to fix, crop up again. This is because the true root cause driving this operational pain isn’t obvious if you’re not looking.  It doesn’t surface in a value stream map or come up in a 5 Why exercise. That is because behavior isn’t typically assessed as a part of these exercises.

 

To successfully implement change and manage the emotional “muda” that bottlenecks progress, individuals must learn to identify and better address the conflict that drives waste in the first place. They must also understand the relationship between an organization’s structures, activities, behaviors and attitudes. Why?

Behavior, not just process is to blame for loss of productivity. Common symptoms of unresolved conflict include:

-       Territorial managers

-       Low morale / pent up anger

-       Failure to use / learn new systems 

-       Failure to progress with performance goals, missing deadlines

-       Failure to address and resolve known issues

Understanding the relationship between an organization’s structures, activities and prevailing behaviors and attitudes (SABA) is key to unlocking performance potential.

What participants will learn:

  • What makes up an organization’s structures, activities, behaviors and attitudes
  • How culture and performance are related
  • How employee engagement drives a Continuous Improvement culture
  • Getting to the real root of your performance pain
  • Why change can sometimes drive conflict
  • Understanding your role in conflict
  • How to get CI to stick
