The average employee in the average company implements one process improvement each year, but world-class companies such as Toyota see fifty implemented improvements per year per employee. These companies have established a systematic process to engage their employees in continuous improvement.
In The 5 Disciplines of Highly Effective Employees, Mike Fedotowsky, a nuclear physicist who was part of the first company outside of Japan to win the Deming Prize, and Seth Hummel, an MIT-trained entrepreneur, along with our collaborators, have created a simple methodology that helps any employee at any level of an organization achieve their full potential by increasing their rate of improvement.
The 5 Disciplines of Highly Effective Employees is based on Dr. Deming’s Plan-Do-Study-Act Cycle for continuous improvement. By answering the following 5 questions, the book will provide you with a disciplined approach to help you maximize your potential at work and beyond.
- What is my job?
- Am I doing a good job?
- How do I analyze my job?
- How do I improve?
- Am I maintaining the gains?
