Although sharing a common culture will promote behavior that is generally appropriate to the expectations of the group, the behavioral direction provided by cultural imperatives alone is somewhat amorphous and indirect. In order to achieve the specific outcomes and the rigorous schedules required for successful industrial performance, we still need to add the precise and closely directed actions of small, well-led teams at the front line and elsewhere throughout the business. As we discuss the subject of leading rapid improvement, we will address both the creation of a new culture for your business that draws all your people together, as well as a new culturally appropriate way to lead the activities of the small teams that conduct the detailed implementation of your strategies.

Normal industrial improvement in Western Europe and North America averages about 3% each year, with a range from negative improvement (in other words, things got worse) to about 6% annual improvement. World-class improvement is generally believed to occur at a more rapid sustained pace of 10% or more each year. Note that the measure of world-class performance is progress against the strategic objectives of the business. Even in the most outstanding businesses, it is impractical to rapidly change everything.

The only reason to create a new industrial culture is to improve the performance of your business. Unfortunately, as business leaders, we know that there is no “control knob” that we can seize upon to dial up improved performance through our own direct action. There is not even a physical or technological tool that we can deliver to our people with the certainty that, if they follow our instructions for the use of the tool, they will create improvement. Causing creative improvement through other people requires a much more complex and engaged relationship than the current industrial practice of supervising people to perform against a fixed standard.
