Management Development

Create depth on the managerial bench

The Primary Constraint to real, sustainable growth, is Management.  Company ambitions and strategies can easily outpace the capability of Management. Senior Management can typically visualize and execute the strategies. Middle Management and Supervisors typically bear the brunt of changing processes along with rapid growth. The first wave of a strategy typically yields results, subsequent ambitions are limited by the capability of middle Management and Supervisors capacity and capability.

Removing the large obstacles and initiating major strategies exposes multiple small improvement opportunities. These become distracting to Middle Management and Supervisors, as they become aware of the multiple issues that require improvement. As operational flow starts to increase, the impact of minor problems are amplified. Knowing where to focus can be overwhelming, due to the many issues once disguised, are now suddenly visible.

The best Managers are Team Coaches. Developing people, creating depth on the Managerial bench and developing the next generation of Management is an imperative for the stability and sustainability of company performance and growth.

Reward system with Short Term Metrics

"Show me how you measure me, and I will show you how I behave." Dr Eli Goldratt.

A secondary effect is the reward system which often focuses on short-term performance. Employees tend to focus on the day-to-day operations in order to achieve the bonus metrics. This dilutes the efforts of major process improvement initiatives, which have a longer term outlook on growth, rather than a short-term reward.
