Management System Simplification

The common reaction to complexity is to add even more complexity. Instead, we help companies simplify and consolidate their overlapping management system processes to align decision-making with strategy and to proactively manage the four sources of risk.

Ineffective management systems paralyze organizations

Every organization has management systems. Some are formal with explicitly defined processes covering every aspect of the business, including: Safety, Quality, Hiring, Performance Evaluation, Reliability, Maintenance, and Finance. In other cases, they are informal or even treated as ad hoc. Regardless of the level of formality, serious problems arise when these management systems start to overlap. This produces conflict and inefficiencies in the business, leads to process breakdowns, and ultimately causes failed business outcomes.

The common reality of multiple, overlapping and redundant management systems

  • Overlapping/unclear ownership
  • Duplicated efforts
  • Unclear/undefined expectations
  • Higher costs to execute
  • Poor organizational performance

A properly designed, well-tuned management system built to meet the organization’s needs

  • Increased organizational performance
  • Rapid learning across the business
  • Reduced costs and overhead
  • Clarity of expectations and accountabilities
  • Improved ability to implement change

Designing the right management system for your business

Designing the right management system for your business requires a clear understanding of the value it brings to the business. A high-functioning, well-designed management system will:

  • Control the four sources of risk to the business (people, process, equipment, and change)
  • Set clear expectations for goals and targets, and assign ownership and responsibilities for achieving them
  • Eliminate redundant processes and conflicting expectations
  • Integrate into the organization’s business planning cycle
  • Drive accountability throughout effective audit and review of process performance
  • Actively incorporate rapid cycles of learning to ensure the management system processes stay relevant and in-tune with the business needs
