Learning to work Simpler Smarter Quicker

Wherever you look, in whatever part of the world and organisation, you will find tired and over-worked people. The pressure to produce results is remorseless, and people simply feel they don’t have the time or resources to do what is asked of them. Certainly not to the quality that they would like it to be. Add to this, that we live in a 24*7 world where the sun never sets on the continuous flow of communications, so we tend to remain permanently ‘connected’, making it increasingly difficult to switch off. Is it any wonder, that we often come across people, who feel they have no life, and who by the end of each year feel burned out – totally exhausted. Surviving means devoting all of your energy to your little plot on the campus, avoiding rich interaction with others because you just don't have the time, and out of this 'solo mentality' is born!

Simpler Smarter Quicker has been created to help individuals, teams and organisations to survive and thrive in the 21st Century. It is a programme that embeds a continuous improvement mindset within team thinking, and simple, yet powerful tools and techniques to deliver the changes.

In designing Simpler Smarter Quicker we have drawn ideas and inspiration from many books and from our experience of working with individuals and teams over the last 20 years. Interestingly. with so many books on the subject, it is surprising that people still struggle to be effective. 

We conclude that generally people know what to do, but they don’t do what they know!
