After you have identified your operational obstacles, the next step is to develop an understanding of why the obstacles exist so that you can develop a plan to mitigate the impact they have on your organization.
However, an obstacle cannot be resolved until there is an understanding of why an obstacle exists. Consider the following:
• What is the root cause? Training, resources, inefficient processes, unclear expectations, inconsistencies, or something else?
• When does it occur? Always, only in certain circumstances, at specific times?
• Who contributes to the obstacle? Specific positions, a department, an individual?
Once there is clarity on why the obstacle exists, then a plan can be set forth to mitigate that obstacle.
