Description

Although many businesses, organizations, and institutions have currently implemented continuous improvement initiatives that address wants, needs, and challenges at the process and systems level, very few have effectively considered and addressed human factors. Thus, even businesses, organizations, and institutions with the most finely crafted continuous improvement systems face failure from inadequate human factors continuous improvement.

Continuous Improvement by Improving Continuously (CIBIC): Addressing the Human Factors During the Pursuit of Process Excellence explains how the frustrating reoccurrence of operating failures are the result of flawed or fragmented business philosophies and principles. CIBIC is designed to promote the pursuit of excellence from mediocrity using an adaptable strategic model that promotes the pursuit of continuous improvement and sustainability in operations, performance management, and personal endeavors. By transforming the pursuit of excellence from a hit-and-miss endeavor to an easily achievable and sustainable continuous endeavor, CIBIC creates value where other systems fail. By addressing gaps, disconnects, and chaotic realities at a fundamental level through the sustained use of frameworks, methods, and analytics, CIBIC promotes the pursuit of excellence across the wide range continuum, eradicating the value and philosophical disconnects that generally plague individuals and collective interests.

This book addresses this systemic problem by highlighting an incredibly comprehensive system that promotes continuous improvement and the pursuit of excellence. By highlighting key inner drivers, essential outer qualities, and supporting models and frameworks, the book makes the pursuit of excellence an easily sustainable and logical endeavor.
