Imagine arriving at these 2 hotels? How is your initial impression? How would one describe the customer experience?
If it was your business – how would you like it to be represented? Who is responsible for this representation – the individual or the business?
We can continue to assign our problems to individual error or we can delve deeper and explore the systems and processes that we have put into place.
“Management is responsible for 94% of the problems” – W. Edwards Deming – Out of the Crisis
It all starts from day 1.
The result in doing these things may be represented in the hotel on the right. The result in not doing these things could be represented on the left. Or you may choose to assign responsibility to the individual in the situation.
Lean thinking creates the right environment for our business, our employees and our customer experience.
