It is a Matter of Time

If told that Cycle Time Management is among the greatest challenges confronting #organizations today what would you say?

If told that a significant percentage of organizational waste is linked to #Cycle#Time#Management, would you readily accept such as the case?

More importantly, if told that greater #leadership focus on effective Cycle Time Management can result in reduce #cost, improved #quality outputs and the correction of a range of #functional and #development challenges, what would you say?

In essence, managing cycle times is about defining #systems for how it will be done, establishing tested timelines in which it can be done and activating functionalities to get it done within defined parameters.

The harsh reality is that Cycle Time Management is among the pertinent factors determining a firm’s #survival in the market. By way of simple example, Firm A producing an item in 30 minutes compared to Firm B consuming 75 minutes to produce the same item, will most likely result in Firm A being more competitive than, and outliving Firm B.

Service providers are known for prompt and #efficient#service – that’s cycle time management in motion. Producers of goods are known for on-time delivery of quality products and maintaining their production consistency in the market. They have mastered the #process of delivering when the customer needs it, and within desired price points. Why? There is a measured commitment to Cycle Time Management.

How satisfied are we with the state of our operating environment? Is it given to Cycle Time excellence? Are we getting #optimum out of designated times for designated tasks, systems and #outputs, or are we consuming important cycle resources and in the process eroding and undermining downstream opportunities for development?

Time, development and opportunity are correlated. Managing them efficiently can make for a better tomorrow.
