Ultimate Improvement Cycle White Paper - .PDF file.

So much has been written in the past few years about the failure of improvement initiatives to deliver significant bottom-line results. There have been theories brought forward about why, after spending so much money on things such as Lean and Six Sigma training, companies are abandoning their formal improvement efforts. One of the primary reasons this is happening is that for the amount of money spent, the return on investment (ROI) is just not there. In this breakthrough whitepaper, Bob Sproull discusses not only the reasons for this failure, but also reveals a dynamic pathway to change the course of events so as to achieve significant, quantifiable and sustainable profit improvements.
