KaiNexus Continuous Improvement Podcast — How Consultants Can Use Technology to Check Culture

n improvement culture cannot be created with a “drop and grow” approach. A continuous improvement culture also needs careful maintenance to grow strong. However, it isn’t easy to measure the health of an improvement culture with spreadsheets or sharepoint files. While a plant gives warning signs in multiple ways, a spreadsheet does not. The only way to know if a culture is failing is that the spreadsheet won’t get filled out.

For consultants, bringing a continuous improvement software platform into their repertoire gives them the ability to conduct health checks on their clients without even being in the building. Software keeps track of due dates, engagement and participation rates, giving consultants and improvement leaders added tools to keep growing their culture.
