A Whole Systems Approach, Part 06/14: How to Measure Purposeful Steps as a Whole?

NOTE: This is a fourteen (14) part series written by Ed Brimmer. I'm reposting his series here, with his permission. For all posts in the series, click here. Thanks for visiting! Lou Hayes, Jr. 

Part 6 is now establishing a dynamic way to build purposeful steps while also adding in Walter Shewhart's Control Charts as an Alerting mechanism for the whole system. Why the importance of the Alerting System? If executives create a Whole Systems Approach policy in which all individuals must follow there should be real genuine fear that the policy could easily harm or enable the business. No executive can be sure of the impact of any of their policies unless they are able to get proactive alerts on the policies in order to prevent messes from occurring in the whole system. Why use Control Charts for the Alerting? Control Charts are what enabled Japan to deliver quality products over quality production lines at massive volumes from an isolated island. It is the change agent.
