TWO Key pillars that make Positive Productivity® so powerful

Transparency
“In the service industry if you know exactly where the time of your employees is spent – you have the ability manage the main asset you have”

Transparency enables line employees to see every day results based on facts and figures from their level of the organisation. They know how their time is spent, what their current level of performance is, the current problems, the potential for improvement and they can visualize the impact of their improvements using the numbers.

“What differentiates good and great teams is their ability for regular and sustainable execution of successful pattern of behaviour”

Team Habits enable line employees to build shared standards of teamwork,  regularly improve their working environment and experience the power of teamwork in their performance during recurring daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly team activities.

Why transparency is the simplest way to achieve better results

The Positive Productivity® transformation starts with mapping all of the activities performed by the team and translating the business strategy into measurable indicators that support everyday business. It is based on providing transparent, reliable, time based data to be used by the operational teams on an everyday basis. The right, reliable, activity based data and its visualization is the key for the employees to SEE  what they should focus on.

In order to harness the power of Transparency we use HarmoDesk – a simple online IT tool which can be implemented very quickly (even in 1 day). It does not require any transactional system changes. It is used by all employees to capture data during daily, current tasks. This data provides reliable information about the time spent on all types of activities, identification of the most common problems, workload distribution and many other factors. Time based data are then used by the teams as the main source of information. It helps them to manage their performance and improve their work.

Why do Team Habits facilitate the full potential of specialists?

Our experience in the business service industry proves that there is a huge potential for using collective intelligence and experience for the purpose of performance and process improvement.

We have learned that the best way to unleash this potential
is through the implementation of particular Team Habits that foster:

best practices sharing

common problem solving

workload balancing and skills development

 

Team Habits facilitates an observable transition from a group of individuals; specialists who just focus on their own work towards a team that uses the advantages of teamwork for the sake of both team and individual performance. This team transformation can be accomplished using the Positive Productivity® methodology in a fast and fluid manner. The implementation of Team Habits facilitates the practical use of the effects of Transparency and has a direct impact on the way that employees experience change. Team Habits provide a way to empower the team to use facts and figures (collected data) on a regular daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly basis to engage everybody in continuous performance and process improvement. There are 7 Team Habits that create a sustainable high performance and continuous improvement culture.
