When our large factory decided to create self-directed work teams, we had no idea how powerful the transformation would be. All our KPI’s improved as we saw employees engage on a level we had never seen before. (safety, cost, quality and delivery improved to record-breaking levels.)
No one likes being told what to do. We would rather be told what the problems are and given the opportunity to solve them. This is what management did; empowered those that do the work to manage how they do it. Self-directed work teams are the most efficient structure for working as a group.
Key Points we will review:
- Challenges that face companies today - Safety, cost, quality, delivery, the pace of change
- What is a self-directed work team?
- Why formal teams are the solution you are looking for.
- How to form work teams.
- Maturing teams produce leaders and growth - What you can expect in return.
