This chart tracks how many Improvements were submitted in the selected month and shows the current status of each Improvement. It shows the growth of a continuous improvement culture over time.
Things to look out for:
- The more Active (Green), Planned (Light Green), and Complete (Black) Improvements, the better.
- Overdue (Red): Should be kept to a minimum. You don't want there to be a lot of overdue Improvements from several months ago, as this is indicative of a bottleneck.
- New (Blue): Should appear only in the most recent month. Otherwise, a bottleneck is indicated.
Lots of New Improvements indicates that leadership is failing to respond quickly and assign New Improvements. Lots of Overdue Improvements indicate that people are not implementing Improvements in a timely manner. A decline in the number of Improvements indicates a drop in engagement.
- Make sure leaders are promptly assigning new Improvements.
- Make sure people are completing the Improvements they’ve been assigned.
