We discuss the need for starting with a clear and easily understood master plan publishing it and communicating it to all team members, then establishing simple accountabilities to ensure the plan is measured and stays on track.

We also discuss the importance of team member involvement and input into the plan to ensure buy in and success of the individual events.

Mark and I discuss a current project in which we employ a triangular approach so to speak.

  1. The use an A3 to record current, and future state conditions, keep track of all the action items from the event.   Ensure their timely execution and keep the team tuned in and engaged.  Download Example: A3 Project Plan
  2. A daily five minute check sheet with a persons name affixed ensuring accountability and sustainability
  3. Regular work place scans (WPS) an auditable numeric record that the area team and supervision participates in, is visibly posted and trended over time to gage long term overall performance.
