What’s a smart culture?
HERE’S A HINT:
IT STARTS WITH PEOPLE.
In industrial environments, smart machines and technology are enabling a new level of performance optimization with real potential to reach new levels of business value. Your organization likely has invested heavily here to gain efficiencies and position the organization for sustainability and growth.
Unfortunately, this reality falls short of the dream for most.
Heavy investments in technology fail to perform in the implementation. Why? Because the organization—people, process and tools—continue to operate in reactive, responsive and uncoordinated ways making it impossible for the assets to live up to the ‘smart’ promise.
In other words, the culture of the operation is in need of an upgrade.
If you want to improve the performance of any operation, you have to start by building a culture to enable it—a smart culture.
A smart culture connects and coordinates people, equipment and technology to optimize the performance of the system. It’s that simple and that difficult. The systems that organize people are often the most difficult to change, but it is possible. The good news? We’ve been working with organizations like yours for close to 50 years to put smart cultures into practice.
