9780071835237: How to Succeed with Continuous Improvement: A Primer for Becoming the Best in the World

Your organizational transformation begins here!

Comprehensive, detailed, and easy to read and understand, How to Succeed with Continuous Improvement takes you through a real-life case study of one organization’s journey to a world-class continuous improvement process.

Joakim Ahlstrom―one of the world’s most respected continuous improvement experts―serves as your coach. He first helps you decide whether you want to embark on the continuous improvement journey and takes you through the entire process step by step, all the way through generating remarkable business results with his unique methods.

In each chapter, Ahlstrom describes a specific stage of the transformation story and provides a clear analysis of each one to help you apply his methods in your own company. In no time you’ll grasp all the concepts you need to know. How to Succeed with Continuous Improvement covers it all, including:

  • How to shift mindsets and behaviors using the often neglected practice of coaching
  • Common pitfalls to help you plan out how you will apply the principles and practices
  • Using “six-legged spiders” and “fishy” diagrams to achieve measurable results
  • Ways to avoid “Watermelon” key performance indicators that often mask the truth

Ahlstrom explains rational behind all the methods in the book―the results they produce, and why―and offers practical advice on how to get full input from everyone involved. Ahlstrom concludes the book with a chapter offering a current-state analysis tool and a simple template to apply in your company.

If you’re seeking to design and launch a continuous improvement program, How to Succeed with Continuous Improvement is the first book you should turn to―and it’s the last one you’ll ever need!
