CI Culture in Virtual Work

with CII Founder, Allison Greco

Your company has gone virtual, but has your continuous improvement program? It’s time to revive your CI culture and embed it into the remote workplace. 

Allison Greco, Founder of Continuous Improvement International, guides you through the process of shifting gears to drive continuous improvement culture in the virtual workplace.

She gives you practical advice on topics like choosing the right CI projects, pivoting your training strategy and incorporating daily improvement.

 

Should you pay for CI ideas?

with Aaron Vokoun, Ideas and Innovation Manager, Morton Salt

The people closest to the work have the best ideas on how to improve the process. We all want our employees to be fully engaged and motivated to improve. So, should we pay them for the ideas that save money? Or, is it simply part of their daily work to come up with improvement ideas? 

Aaron Vokoun, Head of Ideas and Improvement Management at Morton Salt, discusses this controversial topic. 

Aaron is a certified Six Sigma Black Belt and has worked in improvement programs in several different industries. He shares his unique insights from companies that do and do not pay for ideas.  

Creating a Meeting-less Culture

with CII Founder, Allison Greco

We talk a lot about effective meetings, but what if we could also have fewer meetings? You may be unintentionally encouraging an environment that promotes more meetings.  

Allison Greco, founder of CII, guides you through the process of establishing a culture of meeting discipline. 

She explains how to implement a framework for meeting accountability, then grow and nurture a culture to support it. Allison gives practical steps you can start implementing immediately. You can stop having so many meetings and spend more time on the things that deliver incredible value to your customer.
