the biggest threat to successful QFD,
is failing to have a big enough ambition to make QFD and systematic
processes essential. QFD is immensely powerful, but people don't
see the need for change when the goal is so small that their
old ways will probably get them there anyway.
However, organisations are often not used
to thinking in terms of really big goals - it is difficult to
simply suddenly turn off fifty-one and a half weeks of focussing
on the needs of the current situation, in order to spend two
days dreaming of distant, potentially inconceivable, possibilities.
And yet, failing to make this transition:
places the organisation at risk of unforeseen developments in
markets; wastes opportunities for advancement to competitors;
and denies creativity the tension that it needs to really fly.
Targets that the whole organisation can 'take in their stride'
simply emphasise current practice. However, establishing a balance
of stretch targets can transform current practice, and keep the
organisation at the leading edge of its chosen market.
Our solution to this dilemma is a visioning
workshop. A workshop held specifically to focus on possibilities
and the questions "What if?" and "Why not?"
Each workshop is tailored to the client's needs but includes:
end result is an ambitious set of objectives, which the organisation
will feel proud of achieving, but which are supported and underpinned
by the determined commitment of the management team.
to uncondition the mind & free it from current paradigms
of the needs and possibilities facing the organisation
to stretch the imagination of what could be possible
of areas for 'stretch' and creativity
to begin to develop creative solutions
on what to take forward and how

own visioning workshop can be found in the resources
