Selecting a Problem- image - 2

About this Podcast Episode

The starting point for any project-based improvement effort, your Problem Statement should be a concise description of the issue to be solved. Sounds simple, right?  But using this fundamental tool correctly is a common stumbling block amongst practitioners, PMI Senior Consultant Damion Albinson tells us.

So set your project up for success from the very start; join us as Damion shares real examples of what a problem statement is and isn’t, and how to make sure you get it right.

Support your team to get going with improvement

We know that to develop and sustain a strong continuous improvement culture, you must enable employees at all levels of the organisation to be involved in improvement initiatives.

This, of course, is more than a suggestion box scheme. To participate effectively in improvement projects and their implementation, they’ll need to share a common language and understanding of the process and tools that are being used.
