Just-In-Team™

Do these business trends seem familiar to you?

  • products and services having an ever decreasing ‘shelf life’,
  • rapidly shifting business strategies outstrip our ability to change
  • playing ‘catch-up’ because competition is continually ‘leapfrogging’
  • shrinking resources limit the skills development for gaining market advantages 
  • keeping pace with the customer using processes that have many ‘holes’ in them.
  • meeting stronger customer, shareholder and employee demands with fewer resources.

Do these business issues seem familiar to you?

  • “Business is moving so fast that we can’t seem to straighten out our back-office problems”
  • “Everyone in the organization is working with a ‘full plate’.”
  • “Our customers call us every day with the same problems, but we haven’t ‘gotten our arms around’ the issues yet.  We certainly can’t stop our operations until we get a handle.”
  • “Our employees seem to face the same problems day in and day out, and we haven’t developed a way of ‘corralling’ the problems, much less solving them”
  • “Things change so rapidly, and we don’t track orders very effectively, so everything seems to fall through the cracks.  Things is so rushed, people just don’t have the time!”
  • “Our order fulfillment system takes too long, and costs us far too much before we can even bill the customer.  We just don’t have the time to sit down and figure out a better way.”
  • “We are making so many changes to our systems, but haven’t had time to document what is and isn’t working. If we don’t do this soon, we will lose the ability to change them.”

Do these barriers seem familiar to you?

  • Managers are hard pressed to find enough time to develop the skills people need, especially the skills they only need occasionally, so things keep getting put off.
  • Some teams aren’t making the progress needed to move ahead, but everyone is too busy to train them on what to do next.
  • Some of our groups seem to be going in opposite directions in resolving business issues.
