Is there space for standardization in chaotic situations?

Today’s operations are going through an exceptional time globally. The work environment is being disrupted by everything from climate change to mass resignations, and instability in operations.

The challenge of managing the shift through creativity and innovation is immense. It can be chaotic, too.

Now here’s a question: Is standardization possible in a chaotic environment?

This keeps us thinking as we build and implement Transformational Program in the midst of change.

What should be standardized? How much should be standardized?

When disruption happens, things get destabilized, but there is huge value and excitement generated.

There seems to be no generic situation. Every scenario calls for creativity on your part.

However, for sustenance, the next phase of innovation is critical. In order to stabilize it, we need processes, training, skill development, etc.

Here, we share a few tips to help you get started on the journey:

โœ… Standardization provides stability in new sectors before moving on to the next growth opportunity – new clients, new products/services, and so on.

โœ… Through this process, you create room for critical thinking, and inventiveness, making the task more engaging.

โœ… We will see Consistency; you will see opportunity and enthusiasm for raising the bar.

โœ… Knowledge can be retained and distributed within the organization without the need to reinvent the wheel. Without it, your company’s expertise can become tribal knowledge.

โœ… Creating the appropriate space for creative innovation and eliminating wasteful activities

โœ… You create a playbook that addresses the culture and style of work. You evaluate and get better.

This shows us the vast potential for standardization in a chaotic, innovative development process.

One way to find opportunities for standardization is during the project closing, and lessons learned sessions.

Ask questions like: Is it a generic process or an exceptional process?

In an exceptional case, which part can be standardized?

What needs to be escalated and de-escalated? and more similar questions…

You want to establish Programs that aligns with your Organization strategy and enable growth while decreasing stress on people and systems.

In these areas, we can help you achieve operational excellence and contribute to sustainable development by using our knowledge in organizational development, strategic plan alignment, and continuous improvement.
