The objective was to improve two key performance metrics – Issue Resolution Time and Customer Satisfaction.

Putting Lean in Practice

Key programme activities, included:

  • Training and mentoring employees in business process improvement: Lean thinking, tools and techniques.
  • The existing business performance metrics were better understood as was the employee’s ability to analyse the data and identify opportunities for improvement.
  • Data collection and analysis was conducted with specific plans developed to address the issues identified.
  • Daily PIT (Performance, Issues & Targets) meetings on cases critical to the key metrics were established with specific actions and owners assigned to ensure timely case closure.
  • This methodology was piloted with one team; the results were positive and sustained over time.
