Identifying Improvement Projects
This brief was designed to help a family group (people who normally work together) to use a simple brainstorming technique to identify possible improvement projects that they could carry out in their workgroup, and select the best ones to tackle. It usually takes about an hour and a half to complete.
It has been used numerous times in practice either as part of one of our training workshops or as part of a work group meeting. One small regional team of a Government organisation used it to identify 20 projects which they then tackled and implemented in small teams over an eighteen months period.
