My TPI Advice

Can be summed up as follows:

  • Research all models.
  • Use models as an "a la carte" menu.
  • Create a model that suits your context.
  • Continuously improve the process.
  • Don't try to do everything at once.
  • Establish a cadence of continuous improvement.
  • Lean principles break down barriers, & thus work best when a senior leader champions them.

And don't forget:

  • Measure where you are before you start.
  • Decide where to go.
  • Communicate at all times.
  • People make it all work!
