THE KEY PILLARS OF KNOWLEDGE

Lloyd Adapt 2-1

VISUALISING the Work

Learning to do this provides the infrastructure for change by creating a comprehensive map of the entire organisation. These maps illustrate the organisation's relationship to customers, suppliers, end-to-end workflow and the marketplace. You will gain the skills to determine exactly which elements require visualisation and emphasis and to construct end-to-end business visualisation systems.

MEASURING the Work

Understanding work measurement is a crucial skill in the Change Agent's arsenal. Adaptive business measurement systems focus on how work is generated in response to customer needs and how value flows through the end-to-end business. As you acquire this understanding, you will learn the difference between volume metrics and flow metrics, as well as business and customer outcomes.

PERFECTING the Work

Continuous change is a journey towards perfection. It ensures the delivery of business objectives by consistently and perpetually identifying superior, cutting edge ways of delivering value. Obtaining skills to evaluate the ways in which a business improves will develop your capability to analyse how the systems of improvement can be aligned to customer, employee and business outcomes.
