  • The Process Approach – everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler | Infinite Ideas
    also remember a remark of Albert Einstein which certainly applies to music He said in effect that everything should be as simple as it can be but not simpler So please forgive me as I translate the Einstein quote into a summary we can apply to our process analysis as we look to make transition to ISO 9001 2015 certification We have to break each process down into as few simple steps as possible based on our experience of how they work in real life And we must ensure that we understand their relationships and contribution to the other processes in the overall system in generating outputs for the customer So for each process step we need a more profound understanding of the activity than just to type a simple flowchart box description Taking an everyday example most manufacturing processes and many service deliveries have a final flowchart box Deliver goods Drive to service delivery point Abracadabra again Again if only it were that simple Most blog readers have real world experience of driving In the UK where I drive most it is notoriously unpredictable and the same applies for every national capital and many trunk roads in most countries around the globe If we are to truly understand the process approach we need to spend time and effort on that one box on our flowchart Deliver goods Here is a short list I came up with that frame the activity Delivery instructions Available vehicle Loading arrangements Distance to customer Available driver Traffic situation Accidents Weather conditions Customer security procedures Unloading arrangements The process approach says you have a good understanding of each activity element and can control them to satisfy your customer Drilling down into a couple then Available driver Licence to drive vehicle class Competent to act as your organisation representative out on the road Current clean licence Time on tachograph to complete planned job Contingency for Peaks in demand Holiday sickness absence Traffic situation At departure time At planned return time Roadworks on the primary route Alternative routes in the event of a disruption Major events sporting social along planned route s Unusual expected traffic pattern holiday periods In order to demonstrate they have determined their processes under the requirements of ISO 9001 2015 Clause 4 4 1 organisations need to answer all bullets above and a lot more I haven t thought of Many answers won t come from the same area the driver is in but may be carried out by individuals working in other processes recruitment licence checking perhaps in HR or traffic monitoring in a central logistics function for example So our organisational complexity builds and we have a range of support processes influencing our ability to Deliver a single box in one order fulfilment process Obviously this is now a lot of work but it does have a purpose By understanding our process better we are able to improve it and cope with eventualities as and when they happen When we have

  • 'Leadership is often a duet rather than a solo' | Infinite Ideas
    leader is the one who recruits the others by making the vision so palpable and seductive that they see it too and eagerly sign up Chris Gibson Smith chairman of the London Stock Exchange and a former BP executive emphasized the teamwork element of business and of leadership Business is a team based enterprise there are almost no exceptions The combined brain is a bigger brain than the individual brain There is almost no problem that is not better solved by engaging a group of the right sort of people with the right skills in the solution harmoniously Richard Hytner deputy chairman of Saatchi Saatchi has studied leadership duos and champions the role of the much neglected number two The reality he points out is that we can t all be number ones there aren t enough number one roles in the first place and many of us would be ill suited to them anyway The truth is we spend most of our careers even as heads of functions factories geographies or service lines serving at least one master yet choose to shape our identity as early as we can as a number one a supreme leader Where after all is the glamour in shaping an identity as one who merely advises or assists says Hytner What is needed is a new model of leadership for all leading players one that assigns roles clearly and aspirationally and one that encourages more people to discover through choice not just the well trodden path to the top but the joys of leading from the shadows as a destination in its own right By conflating all types of leader into just two A the ultimately Accountable and C the Consiglieri there are usually more than one who liberate enlighten and deliver for the A the role of the second is elevated to equal amongst firsts circumventing the tyranny of the number one s titular supremacy and the prevailing undercurrent of second syndrome The original consiglieri were the advisers to leaders of Italian mafia families made famous by Mario Puzo s novel The Godfather As Richard Hytner makes clear consiglieri also operate in more legitimate fields They are the deputies assistants and counselors who support inform and advise the final decision makers of organizations Consiglieri or Cs are leader makers and leaders in their own right While only a few go on to become ultimate A leaders many more perform roles in which they make shape illuminate and enhance the success of the out andout A leader and the organization The majority of consiglieri positively embrace their roles says Hytner They have not settled gloomily for C after having their love for A spurned They have learnt the joys of influencing As whom they admire and respect They wish to be close to power across their organizations and to have autonomy to get their jobs done They are insatiable learners accruing new experience as if their life depends on it which as some consiglieri
