An organization can best sustain growth and development if each and every employee regardless of his or her position can see direct benefits by improving their processes. Our intervention lays down a clear path for such sustainable development of an organization and has a cascading effect by which all the stakeholders within and outside the organization are benefited in some way or the other.
Most initiatives focus on the technologies and facilities for bringing in improvement and this requires investment. KIAP’s intervention, based on lean philosophy, focuses on the organizational systems, work processes, methods and practices and enables the organization to achieve high levels of performance with minimum investment.
The focus is on individual learning and development which in turn leads to improvement in the process. KIAP’s intervention often helps in the development of those people who normally would never have got the opportunity otherwise. Further, the streamlining of the process eliminates the need for constant fire fighting thereby reducing the stress levels of the middle managerial staff.
