What is Fast Track Process Improvement?
Fast track process improvement is a streamlined approach to identifying and resolving issues in a process, with a focus on achieving quick results. It involves identifying the most critical problems in a process and quickly implementing solutions to address them. The fast-track approach emphasizes speed, efficiency, and agility in identifying and implementing process improvements. This approach is often used when there is an urgent need to improve a process, such as when a process is causing significant delays or financial losses. The goal is to achieve quick wins and build momentum for ongoing process improvement efforts. Fast track process improvement typically involves a cross-functional team that works together to identify and resolve process issues, and it may involve the use of tools such as process mapping, root cause analysis, and kaizen.
