Plus 1%

In Ken Blanchard’s book Raving Fans, he talks about setting the realistic goal of improving 1% per week. So if you’re trying to help people connect into your organization, how can you connect 1% more people this week than last week? If you’re focused on improving quality, improve it 1% this week, 1% the next week, and 1% the week after that…

If you improve 1% a week for an entire year, you’ll have improved 50% over the next 12 months!

    Nice post! Kaizen, continuous improvement is an awesome goal, and looking at the impact of incremental improvements really shows how they make a huge difference over time. Have to define what you mean in terms of connecting people into the organization before you can improve 1% each week — is it about increased numbers or does it include more than that? Does it include feelings of connection, bond, shared purpose? Tougher to measure, but sooooo worth it! šŸ™‚
