Process improvement personnel leverage powerful techniques to change how people, teams and organizations work. In wielding these powerful techniques they take on great responsibility. The ability to affect how work is done is not always a positive for everyone in involved. For example, increasing efficiency might ultimately be reflected in staff reductions or cost savings in jobs sourced elsewhere. The goal might not always be perceived as win-win by everyone.
Strong measures may be required. You are authorized personnel, it is your responsibility to use them carefully and make sure you use proper safety techniques.
