There’s an inherent misconception that if you simply “remove a bottleneck” from your business, you’ll solve the problem. (This imagery uses a bottle to describe a business process)
Well, let me ask you — where is a bottleneck on a bottle? At the top…
So if you remove that, what happens? You get an open bottle with half of it missing… it doesn’t solve your problem.
What you need is a new bottle.
Let me explain…
If you simply think that by eliminating one error or redundancy in any given process, you’ll get a different result is a fallacy.
You need to redesign the entire process from top to end. Thinking through every point of the process and ensuring a smooth workflow.
This is much more than just “removing a bottleneck”.
The process to this is simple:
1.Understand the problem
2.Create a plan and design to address the problem
3.Implement the solution
4.Get feedback on the implementation
This is how you redesign and create real lasting change.
