Create sustainability by using the change process to mentor future leaders
The TQPI methodology is a powerful leadership development model because it is based on people developing their own solutions. You can expect to see three behaviors emerge:
Leadership: Program governance occurs at the executive, functional, and tactical execution levels. The structure delivers vertical engagement and horizontal alignment for healthier communication and decision making; and greater visibility and accountability for outcomes.
Ownership: The TQPI model creates trust; first in the process as participants are engaged and become aware of the issues, challenges and potential courses of action. They next develop trust in one another through dialogue and understanding as they storm through healthy conflict to reach consensus. This builds a sense of ownership as people give one another permission to challenge old methods and innovate new solutions.
Execution Capabilities: A deliverable of the LEAN Innovation Process is that participants will identify "Self-Funding Early Wins" and "Just Do It" projects. These establish early momentum, and build credibility and confidence. Meanwhile, "Solutions Teams" teams construct a longer-term Program of Work. Early wins build execution skills that create an appetite for continued success.
The emergent leadership, ownership and execution capability lead to positive cultural shifts, creating a sustainable culture of continuous improvement. High-Potentials thrive, and those who are less productive are challenged to make different decisions.
