Operational excellence underpins the systems and standards fighter pilots use to execute their strategies at a rate of 98 percent and operate more consistently than their opponents. It’s evidenced by results.
In business, operational excellence is defined by a comprehensive understanding of risk, lower operating costs, higher revenues that collectively deliver higher margin. Organization’s that aspire to this standard are agile, meaning they adapt quickly to external forces and do more with less.
Philosophically, operational excellence is not a management processes, system or methodology. It’s an ability to look beyond event-based models, such as a training module, course or individual development process, and commit to a long term and continuous organizational adaptive culture.
Operational excellence occurs when an organization adopts an agile framework for action (process) and way of thinking (culture).
Flex gives your organization the structure to pause, see clearly, and think clearly. When you give clear, measurable, achievable objectives it allows leaders to lead their teams to achieve those goals on a daily basis.
Flex will focus your team towards a culture of truth, instead of artificial harmony though the practice of debriefing. By focusing on what’s right — not who’s right — you’ll be able to transfer and apply actionable lessons learned to tomorrow’s mission and enjoy increasingly greater success rates with each iteration.
An Afterburner safety development program will empower your people to improve teamwork, communication and collaboration which will have a direct impact on safety. Our programs are experiential, fast-paced and designed to challenge the way your people think and operate.
You team will:
Operational excellence through the art of Debriefing
Learn to focus on what’s right — not who’s right — to transfer lessons learned and enjoy increasingly greater success rates with each iteration.
An Afterburner Debrief Workshop is realistic work development experience designed to give your team the practical skills to effectively review the results of a completed or in-progress project/mission and act upon those results to achieve a desired outcome.
Guided by our fighter pilot facilitators, your team will learn to objectively review performance in a way that develops, improves and accelerates individual and collective performance.
To properly identify the true root cause of a result, we will introduce your leaders to our unique culture of “Nameless and Rankless” where position/title, personality, ego and fear or threat of reprimand is no longer relevant and has no bearing. This “nameless and rankles” tone is essential to achieving the honesty and truthfulness necessary to identify the actions required for change.
By the end of the workshop your team will have identified the results a completed mission, determined the reasons for those results and developed actions to ensure mistakes are not repeated, and successes are.
