Factory Week = Focused Work Even if you're not a factory.
Do you ever face a time where you wish you could "just get this one thing accomplished?" Factory weeks are just that... A time to get the key people away to work together on one agenda... one output. The word factory implies work. It means knocking it out, or knocking it down.
In an age of distraction. One thing is everything.
Let's face it, we all have more than one thing staring us in the face. However, there is usually that one big thing that if you can overcome that barrier - Wow!
Noses in the same direction?
The Dutch have a saying about "getting all of the noses in the same direction". Where are the noses of your team? Focused on their own set of issues? Pointing at opposite directions...which means they are not talking together or seeing the same pictures of success? Focused work gets your team back to basics with some serious face time. We are good at aligning noses.
What gets in the way of Great?
Sometimes it is just time, space, your leadership and a great facilitator. We have been doing this for years. We help you to organize the week, bring the players together, facilitate progress and assignments and help take much of the work off of you so that you too can participate fully in the process.
Imagine the day after.
Imagine a team coming together for one thing. Prepared before hand with agendas, assignments, pre-work completed. Imagine the speed that could happen with minimal distractions. Imagine the progress after the week is finished!
Strategy... or the next step
Intense strategic planning facilitation. We are especially good at getting large groups aligned quickly. We have even done Factory Weekends focused on translating strategic plans into tactics .
Do you have an idea for a change in structure?
Organization redesigns take time. Most of the time, they take too much time. Sometimes one Factory Week will do the trick. Sometimes it takes a few. Either way, focused work with the right people and dedicated time with deadlines moves organization design along fast.
What's your fence?
What's keeping your team from going to the next step? Can you see the upside of solving the headache when others can't? That's why you must be the champion.
That one problem
Do you know what happens in the world of Big Data, Six Sigma, and information overload? Problem solving becomes very complicated. Made even more complicated by overly complex tools misapplied to basic problems. Sometimes you need to work swiftly but in a focused manner with facilitators who can bring a vast tool set to the situation.
We all have that one thing no one wants to tackle. However, if someone would just take it on, make it fun, and get it done. Yep. We do that.
