The Difference between Integrative Improvement and other CI Processes

What sets integrative improvement apart from other CI processes?

Lean, Six Sigma, TQM — you’ve probably applied some of these CI methodologies to your business, with varying degrees of success. And while each one of these approaches can improve operational efficiency and performance, they are often implemented in isolation, with different sites implementing different CI tools at different times.

This silo approach to implementation doesn’t deliver sustainable results — in fact, it can even have a negative knock-on effect on other areas of your business or further down the value chain.

The solution is to take a holistic approach to improvement and to integrate all people, systems, processes and functions.
