Enhanced Troubleshooting: KT and Six Sigma
Categories: Operations

Six Sigma is about “Common Cause” problems, where factors inherent to the product or the process cause deviations over time. Think of any machine—all machines produce heat and all machines vibrate.  And over time, that heat will eventually dry out and crack the seals and gaskets, and the vibration will eventually work all the bolts loose. This is just in the nature of things—inherent variation.  Six Sigma attempts to isolate those inherent sources of variation, and to reduce them.

When an organization needs to act quickly to ramp up production, reduce costs, or meet other extraordinary changes or goals, Kepner-Tregoe (KT) has developed a process approach for targeted, sustainable change. This effective three-phase model (diagnose—implement—sustain) is a powerful intervention that moves beyond the incremental improvements of CI to target and achieve specific, dramatic improvement

Manufacturing Excellence: When Continuous Improvement Falls Short
Categories: Operations

Kepner-Tregoe (KT) has developed both a philosophy and practical project model to enable organizations to address extraordinary threats and opportunities. This is achieved by moving beyond CI with an intervention that focuses on extraordinary, sustainable change.  KT Step Change is a robust three phase model (Diagnose — Implement — Sustain) which guides an organization through assessing the potential for improvement, selecting and scheduling the optimal project mix, and then making sustainable changes to operational practices, processes, procedures and performance expectations.

Today's 'knowledge economy' is creating a culture of confusion.
Categories: Human Resource en Leiderschap ontwikkeling Operations

Most people feel uncertain by the lack of technical knowledge of the system or product they support. More technical training seems the first action management reaches for. Unfortunately technical training is only valid for a certain domain and for a short period of time. Is it possible, any longer, to keep up with the speed of technology changes? Is knowledge the only driver that gives us the power and certainty. No not at all, more is needed to become more effective. Studies executed by Kepner & Tregoe showed us that good decisive actions are always preceded by clear thinking. But precisely that clear thinking is letting us down when it is equally exciting.

Case Study: Real-Time Project Management at Rio Tinto
Categories: Operations

Rio Tinto Energy America (RTEA) leadership felt that traditional training with theoretical project applications didn’t meet their world-class project management needs or time-strapped schedules. So RTEA partnered with Kepner-Tregoe (KT) project experts on a unique type of training, called “Learn and Do,” that has training participants apply real-time learning to an active project.

At RTEA’s Spring Creek Mine, “Learn and Do” participants addressed a 30-day, maintenance outage for an electric shovel that digs out 80-foot coal seams and loads coal into trucks—moving 50 cubic yards in a single scoop. RTEA worked with KT using the three phase Learn and Do process.
