Take part in our improvement culture study!
Surviving in today’s business environment requires companies to constantly adapt and manage the changes from within the organization.
Your organizational culture serves as the foundation of your employees’ attitudes, actions and decisions and must be closely linked to your economic goals. Your organization’s culture influences market perception and thus your success as employer and economic player.
A Continuous Improvement Culture supports you in actively tackling these challenges you are confronted with daily. Based on shared values and convictions, all members within a Continuous Improvement Culture constantly strive for unprecedented, outstanding results for their customers
- Satisfied customers:
A Continuous Improvement Culture puts the customer at the center of all your actions. It ensures that all members of your organization are consistently striving to inspire and win over your customers with new solutions.
- Increased quality at lower cost:
Continuous striving for perfection will help you successfully balance conflicting expectations of simplicity, maximum product and service quality as well as fair prices.
- Increased productivity and flexibility:
The Continuous Improvement Culture fosters productivity and flexibility by ensuring that all members find the right balance between the highest possible output and maximum variability.
- Dedicated employees:
Your employees will take responsibility, create an environment that encourages teamwork, and strive to find the best solutions to current organizational challenges.
- Reduced employee turnover:
By promoting employee motivation, you minimize staff turnover. Thus, loss of competence, uncertainty within teams, high effort, and costs for new recruitment as well as unstable customer relationships will hardly be an issue anymore.
Defining Continuous Improvement Culture
To us, a Continuous Improvement Culture is characterized by dedicated, constantly questioning and innovative ways of working and thinking at all levels of the organization. In this sustainable organizational culture, each team reacts effortlessly and independently to any kind of change.
Our four pillars of cultural transformation
Our experience shows that cultural transformations are among the most difficult organizational changes. Measures such as innovative break rooms are of limited help. Organizational culture is not determined by the obvious physical measures but by fundamental values and recognized behaviors. Consequently, organizational culture must be developed from the bottom up. Our holistic approach builds on four major pillars to drive cultural change.
- Vision, Strategy & Goals:
Meaningful, customer-oriented organizational purpose is comprehensibly broken down to team level and individual employees. Employees are able to identify their individual contribution to the organizational purpose at any time.
- Ways of Working:
A Continuous Improvement Culture is characterized by constant learning and development. This is reflected in the ways of working: critical questioning aims to reduce unproductive activities and identify deficiencies. Errors are immediately and openly discussed and addressed before they negatively affect customer experience.
- Leadership & Empowerment:
Managers understand that their main task is to develop and empower their teams to efficiently deliver value to the customer and independently improve their ways of working.
- Mindset & Skills:
Teams have the necessary skills to over-fulfill customer needs. This requires a constant exchange with the environment to identify and anticipate customer needs.
