We too often see contractors attacking the problem only at one level and not looking at the entire value stream identifying what adds the most value and what does not.
- Company - Do you have the right people in place to identify and eliminate waste? Does your market strategy and opportunity selection process provide projects where you have the best chance of success?
- Projects - How effective is your planning process?
- Tasks - What percentage of your tasks have all 6 Pillars of Productivity met before starting?
- Steps - Look at every detail, every screw, every step and see if you can eliminate it.
Remember that the actual speed of the crafts people installing things IS NOT the biggest problem with productivity.
