Prioritisation - Working on the Vital Few : a recording of our webinar

“The past 15 months have given us a crash course in the challenges of managing unexpected change.  To maintain momentum, clear priorities are required. “Of all the things that can boost emotions, motivation, and perceptions during a workday, the single most important is making progress in meaningful work.”        – Teresa Amabile, Harvard Professor

From the Senior Leadership Team’s organisational goals to your personal daily ‘to-do list’, understanding what is essential is key.  We won’t always complete everything every day, but if we know the priorities, then those will get done.

Stop, Start, Continue: Improvement Post-Covid? A recording of our webinar

With vaccines rolling out, we’re now entering a new phase of the pandemic.  So what will you stop, start or continue in the new different?

At the start of the pandemic global supply chains were interrupted, the way we interact shifted online, and remote work became the norm in a way no one could have predicted – a recent Gartner survey stated 74% of companies plan to permanently shift to more remote working.

Brace For Impact! A recording of our webinar

At the start of any journey, knowing where you are going is key.  Being focused saves time and frustration, and reaching your planned destination gives you the confidence to go on another trip.

Improvement initiatives are just the same: if you don’t know what it is that you want to accomplish when you embark on an improvement journey, how do you know whether the change has been effective?  And if you can’t demonstrate your impact, why would you want to undertake another?

This is where knowing how to measure your impact comes in.

If you missed our webinar ‘Brace for Impact!’, you can now watch the recording.  Warren Knight spoke about what constitutes impact, collecting evidence, outputs versus outcomes and identifying and aligning impact.
