Creating a culture of excellence is a challenging endeavor. It can only be attained through intrinsic motivation of employees.
We have helped a listed chemical company to launch excellence initiatives across different areas of activity. A thorough analysis of the status quo revealed that similar, but uncoordinated, initiatives were planned throughout the company. Based on deep insights into the company culture, we conceived an umbrella framework for all excellence programs within the company. The framework builds on pride and teamwork as main factors of intrinsic motivation.
The framework was first applied to a lean management project in one of the business units, including the conception of training materials and signage. Ensuring good visibility and positive image right from start, the project quickly earned strong engagement and acceptance.
