What is Continuous Improvement?
Operational objectives often require increased efficiencies and reduced complexities. Transforming complex processes and systems has a cross-functional effect. It therefore makes sense to gain cross-functional input. Equally, efficiencies are probably being gained elsewhere in your business but are you aware what they are and how they’re achieved?
By collaborating and engaging across holding companies, regional sites or departmental teams, businesses improve transparency and have insight into operational efficiencies. Collaboration plays a substantial role in achieving the ripple effect of change.
Idea Spotlight, Wazoku’s idea management platform, is being used by global organisations to implement incremental changes in operations, realise cost savings and reduce times to market.
By bringing together diverse and disparate workforces to contribute ideas regardless of scale, our customers benefit from knowledge sharing, creativity and contribution that was previously non-existent.
Wazoku works with customers to design innovation programmes that have a clear focus of implementing change in desired areas. Idea Spotlight removes perceived barriers between departments or regions, enabling increased transparency across all teams.
