In order to implement any or all of these target areas a systematic approach is required together with a commitment to act. No matter whether your business improvement system is paper based, automation based or a combination of both, there has to be a will within your company to turn the gathered data into useful information and then act on it. Unless there is going to be commitment to act then any business improvement system will be to no avail, and the business improvement act itself will be a waste of time and money. We would suggest that in these days of extreme competitiveness all businesses have to run as efficiently and cost effectively as possible, and so we believe that companies should consider their approach, and then strategically work towards their end goal with each step improving their business and profitability.
