Measurable Management® Program Structure
The Measurable Management® Program will take place over a 7-month period. The participants will meet every two weeks for the first seven group meetings and then monthly for the last four meetings. Each meeting lasts approximately three hours.
Measurable Management® has three primary platforms it is built upon.
The program begins with an Introductory Meeting to kick-off the program. Senior management and the immediate supervisors of the participants attend the Introductory Meeting to learn what the participants will be working on and experiencing. This is one of the unique elements of the Measurable Management Program that makes the program such a success. This method aligns the participants behind the Key Objectives set by senior management. It also informs the immediate supervisors of the participants what their role is and how they can support the participants to make the program a success.
During the next six group meetings, the participants will experience a work-based learning program.
The first three sections of the Participant Manual deal with soft skills including effective leadership, teaching a listening and involving style of management... a pull style of management.
The next three sections deal with the more technical aspects of process improvement which includes evaluating their customers and suppliers (internal and external), identifying problem areas and how using certain processes and technical tools can effectively solve problems.
We continue to emphasize applying the softer skills to process improvement, by teaching the participants how to involve the people affected by the change rather than imposing the changes on them. We teach the participants how to get the ownership of change to rest with the people who have to implement the change.
By the end of the Measurable Management® program the participants will have each implemented three Ideas for Action that are directly related to your organizations key issues or objectives. The results are astounding. Just take a look at some examples of Ideas for Action and results from organizations that have implemented the Measurable Management® Program:
