Leader Guide: Scaling Up For Growth

The Scale Up Road Map

This second support programme builds on the progress made to date through the Breakout Road map to lock in the gains and support task transfer. That releases specialist resource and management time from dealing with day to day issues to carry out higher value adding activities.

That is equivelent to meeting the challenge of draining the swamp whilst fending off the crocodiles. 

Even where the capacity gains cannot be easily converted into output, these countermeasures reduce the risk of human error and levels of quality defects.  They also speed up skill development and improve workforce flexibility. 

  • TPM Centre of Excellence Part 2

    The Scale up Roadmap involves stakeholders working together to surface and deal with the underpinning causes of capacity constraints.  That enhances the Centre of Excellence capabilities by making progress from ad hoc problem solving to focussed improvement. Find out more here.

    That includes better use of data to develop a deeper understanding of cause/effects and to develop competencies to support improved flow and capacity.
