W. Edwards Deming (author of Out of the crisis) said that of all the issues in an organization 95% of them are related to the system, and only 5% are people issues. Thus, for a real change, the focus lays on changing the system and yet a change in the system is often a major change – a Kaikaku.
Each system is optimized for something. Hopefully it is already aligned with the purpose (or function) of your organization. If you do systemic changes, the key question is what should you optimize the system for? Thus one of the key questions to address is to answer what is your (system) optimization goal!
We want you to learn to solve your own problems, impediments, issues, hurdles whatever they are called. It has been shown over and over again that externally induced changes will typically not lead to the desired results in the long run and you will not reach your goals. Instead you need to learn the capability together with your colleagues and partners to tackle those issues by yourself and find a solution which fits into your context.
In this journey, we are in together …
