The P7 Way is the methodology and approach applied by Project7.
We develop your people capability around robust processes to deliver sustainable performance
How often are a vision and strategy understood at every level within an organisation? How does a business create a compelling case for change? Using the Project7 Hoshin Kanri process, businesses are able to determine the right strategy, KPIs and implementation process.
The Project7 framework including Customer Kano Modelling, enables the ‘right first time’ deployment of a business plan including the performance reviews required to ensure your organisation is on track for success.
Tiered Visual Performance Management (TVPM) provides the physical framework for a business strategy to be deployed through each level of the organisation and enterprise wide across all functions.
The creation of a Programme Management Office ensures businesses monitor progress (strategy, SQDCP and KPI’s) at the right frequency. Every customer is different, therefore these are specifically designed to suit your business needs, underpinned by the right level and intensity of training and coaching.
Organisations need to develop strong leaders in order to turn strategic planning into sustainable increased performance. Leaders who undertake Project7 coaching and training are able to discuss performance with confidence and take action when required. This includes the use of Short Interval Control to stop deterioration in performance.
For improvement programmes to succeed, the combination of people and process needs balance. Process Confirmation is the key to monitoring progress. ‘Go Look See’ ensures leaders regularly spend time with the team, observing processes in real time to understand the barriers to performance improvement. Project7 will assist your leaders in engaging people in solving problems more frequently at every level within the organisation.
During any improvement programme, there will be challenges. Following the effective deployment of Short Interval Control (Step 3) and Process Confirmation (Step 4), your businesses can advance to Level 1 problem solving. The 3C basic problem solving method (Concern/Contain/Check) provides a structured approach to problem solving. As the 3C involves helping people at every level within an organisation more frequently, it develops engagement, alignment and an increased rate of improvement.
Once the majority of a workforce are actively engaged in 3C (Containment) activity, there will undoubtedly be system and structural problems that will require root cause analysis and full countermeasure action plans. Project7 root cause analysis is a simple but effective 7 Step methodology supported by a problem solving toolkit for more complicated problems.
Project7 does not underestimate the challenge of leading improvement. Improvement involves leadership by example and leaders who underpin success. Leaders and Managers set the tone, but are sometimes not equipped to lead to success. Project7 work with global organisations at every level from junior manager to CEO, to embed sustainable leadership development and the right behaviours. Project7 ensures that great people are supported by effective processes to achieve outstanding performance.
