Sustainable CI: How to Overcome Common Barriers to Continuous Improvement

CI2 – Continuous Improvement Improved

The ability to execute continuous process improvement is a competitive differentiator. Changing customer behaviors and market dynamics mean that business agility is now more important than ever. But it's one thing to make changes and another to make them stick! Some research claims that nearly 60% of all corporate Six Sigma initiatives fail to yield the desired results.

Join Ýr Gunnarsdóttir, Head of Continuous Improvement at TIBCO, to hear why it’s time to push continuous improvement beyond traditional tools and thinking to manage and collaboratively sustain your improvement initiatives. In this webinar, Ýr offers first hand insight into what works to sustain results and the pitfalls that will lead you on the fast-track to failure.

  • Understand the most commonly cited barriers to continuous improvement and gain practical suggestions on how to overcome them
  • Learn how to create a holistic management framework to combine process management, analytics and collaboration into an effective continuous improvement platform
  • Identify the three critical success factors on which you must refocus your efforts
