“Strattomics: Continuous Improvement - Climbing with Agility to your next Peak (without Business School) is a concise book designed to broaden managers thinking about making continuous improvements to their business. The foundation for the Strattomics series of books is a belief that flourishing enterprises:
a. Continuously improve their products and services,
b. Improve their agility so that they can react more quickly to new opportunities,
c. Effectively manage the expectations of all their stakeholders.
This book explains a spectrum of established business improvement techniques - with examples from the author’s experience in both public and private sectors. The aim is to reinvigorate a commitment to building quality into products and services and establishing a commitment to continuous improvement into enterprise DNA. Strattomics is particularly targeted at Managers and Directors who have not attended business school.
After encouraging readers to consider what is really critical to the quality of the services or products produced by their organisation, improvement techniques such as the Sand cone approach and Plan, Do, Check, Act cycles are explained. The focus then moves to implementing ideas with a description of Force Field Analysis and Importance / Performance analysis.
The book concludes with recognition of the importance of continually balancing the operational needs of satisfying today’s customers and their workforce with the future needs of their enterprise.
