As we continue our discussions around the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple, Sweetheart) approach and how it assists with sustainability, let’s look at some hints for keeping process steps simple.
Here are some questions to consider as you assess the steps to perform a process:
- Is there a lot of “back and forth” between process Participants? Does someone “touch” the process multiple times throughout the process? If so, are there ways to streamline that back and forth effort?
- Does it take more than 3 people to perform a process? Are there ways to reduce or combine those involved with performing the steps?
- Have you combined multiple processes into one? Is this compromising the process efficiency or its effectiveness?
Considering these questions will help to implement K.I.S.S. within your organization.
