We're delighted to announce the new Dux Academy is now available at www.duxinaroe.com
We provide premium courses, teaching Executives, Senior Leaders, Managers and Supervisors, from both the manufacturing and service sectors, how to achieve an increased rate of organisational change and a greater ROI through the conscious development of a Lean Culture.
Our PILOT course is 'Root Cause Analysis and Problem Solving', through which we will provide free 20min coaching sessions for the first 20 subscribers. Similar content will build over the coming months to provide convenient access to this exclusive approach, covering all the Lean tools required to navigate the Lean roadmap below.
The Dux Academy will be your portal to access our exclusive approach to Culture and Culture Change ... This is the critical pre-cursor to the 'Initial Stage' activities, of *Business system Introduction *Communication *Employee Involvement *Strategic plan *Hoshin Kanri (Policy Deployment) and *Kaizen (as shown in the image above).
The entire corporate world knows that the sustainability of any change initiative has been the greatest challenge since Quality Circles first graced our shores in the late 1970's and early 1980's... and that a lack of sustained change (to deliver continuous process improvement) is a result of a lack of focus on Culture Change!
We've all seen the pattern;
1. Introduce Lean Tools / New Technology as a project,
2. Introuce a Strategic model as a project,
3. Blame the people / culture!
... with very little idea of how to address, blame, the poor adoption of the new methods or, in general, the culture... other than through the introduction of more tools and technology.
To break that cycle, we utilise the latest findings from the worlds of Neuroscience and Psychology to provide a working definition of culture. Dux leaders come to understand what it takes to create the conditions in which people feel psychologically safe (reducing / removing "resistance to change") which increases the adoption rate of new methods.
Join the Dux Academy free today and we will make sure you're the first to hear when each new course becomes available.
We look forward to seeing you there and helping you with your change initiatives www.duxinaroe.com
Root-Cause problem solving applies to more than just process and machines!
I was reflecting (Socratic Reflection / Hansei / Alpha Brain Wave State / Meditation - give it whatever label suits your language register).
It dawned on me, that we forget a lot of what we have previously known... and a model I threw together one day about 8 or 9 years ago (to capture a few thoughts) popped into my head ... so I dug it out and gave it the once over.
I just shared this on LinkedIn ... let's see what responses it provokes from some of the biggest names in the global change community?
Thoroughly enjoyed participating in yet another great i&i show with a great panel of guests.
I'm truly honoured to be involved - thanks to all at i&i who set these regular shows up and allow me to have my two pennyworth.
So, it's that time of the month again and we're ready for another great i&i show with a fascinating title ... which prompts an obvious question ...
Q. Are the current approaches adopted toward change effective?
If you listen to the stats from just M&A, Lean Six Sigma and I.T. implementation histories, you have to put a big question mark over what is currently done. Talent loss from cultures merging, Flow over batch failing to be integrated into the psyche of a business and billions lost by Governments, Hospitals and Commercial entities about with stories of woe surrounding I.T.
Q. So what's missing?
That is what we'll hope to touch on in the show later today.
If you realise it's the effectiveness of 'the approach to change itself' that really makes the difference to sustainable organisational performance improvement (more than the content) and you'd like to hear the musings of a few people with extensive experience leading change, follow the link above and join us. See you there.
