This may seem straightforward and obvious, but our approach should seek-out and focus on those activities that add value. But what do we mean by that? – Value-Added Activities include:
- Focusing on What is Important to the Business
- Quick Wins and/or “Low Hanging Fruit”
- Achieving Your Desired Results, and/or Getting KPI Results
- Ensuring Your Roadmap and Timeline is Realistic and Practical
Seek-out and Focus on Those Activities That Add Value
Insight from a Master Sensei
Make sure you Seek the Value-Added in everything that you do. And what is the KPI  or target that I/we want to achieve? Ensure this is defined by a clear purpose and a reason for why you are solving the problem or making an improvement activity… This is important because it becomes a “Win/Win” for all of those involved, which builds momentum.
