Lesson Learned/Best Practice
During the EDI kickoff meeting, each team member brought 3 goals with them to discuss with the team. Each person was allowed time to talk through their desired goal and how to achieve it. After the session, B&G team collected and organized all the goals, and then collaborated with the rest of the team to agree on 7 top goals with the team. These were tracked in at top of the A3 executive summary each month. At the end of EDI, the team achieved 6/7 goals, including beating the EDI cost savings goal and the final GMP coming in under budget. The last goal was to finish construction early, which could not be measured yet.
Suggested Actions for Future Projects
EDI goal setting should be a collaborative effort to ensure buy in from the whole team.
