THE SYSTEMATIC 10-STEP PROCESS© FOR TPmgt
The basic concepts of Total Productivity Management (TPmgtTM) are brought together in a systematic, step-by-step procedure (Figure 4.1) to implement TPmgt with the greatest success possible. Beginning in 1981, the implementation methodology for TPmgt has undergone repeated careful observation, "perfecting" it along the way—changing the sequence and timing of the steps, learning what worked well and what did not, and refining the process for the highest probability of success, with the fewest side effects. The implementation process is like a good recipe. The type, quantity, and quality of ingredients are important, but even more important is the sequence in which they are added.
