Manage Projects

What are projects?

Project is a term with multiple applications.  In the world of operational excellence, projects can be defined as a discrete set of related activities involving multiple people (i.e., the project team) in order to solve a problem or improve performance.  All projects should operate on a time scale and achieve measurable outcomes.  Additionally, all projects should be well-managed and follow a proven method to ensure those outcomes are achieved.

For operational excellence teams, projects provide tangible opportunities to apply and teach operational excellence concepts, methods, and tools to improve performance within the business.
