RMG’s methodology is designed to be applicable within numerous contexts. Each phase of the methodology is backed by a thorough set of tools and techniques developed and refined over 30 years. The content of each step in the RMG methodology is flexible and based on the unique project objectives.
Chain of Success
Without clear financial goals and alignment from the executive offices to the workforce, organizational levels can unwarily work toward different goals, resulting in higher costs, less output and compromised safety. RMG uses this tool to develop a business case and justification for embarking on an improvement initiative.
Connecting these important links can bring clarity to an operation and benefits to its bottom line; A “Chain of Success”.
A comprehensive review of existing processes and procedures that identify the organizations' strengths, opportunities, and challenges. Key recommendations are identified and supported with a business case. The Assessment step provides quantified descriptions of the organization’s current strengths while identifying additional industry best practices that the organization could gain value from adopting.
Executive & Management Expectations
RMG develops a detailed plan, utilizes sound project management fundamentals, and executes the implementation plan. Cross-functional teams develop revised processes and procedures to address improvement opportunities. The management expectations document then becomes the directive to the Implementation Planning and Design group. A cross-functional team is then lead through the development of improved processes. Finally, dedicated training and field coaching drives ownership and sustainment amongst the organization.
Implementation Planning & Design
A clearly defined process for reviewing the assessment findings, gaining leadership alignment and commitment, and understanding the recommendations. The key deliverables from these sessions include the establishment of project boundaries, milestones, and implementation deliverables. These sessions prioritize and clarify a set of new practices or habits that the management team would like to see implemented. This includes defining the expected deliverables from implementation as well as any specific characteristics or attributes desired of the work processes.
One on One structured field coaching of key personnel to ensure the processes are being followed and managed as designed; training
