Sustaining TPM: Develop a Strategy

The final video in the Sustaining TPM series reviews the importance of establishing a both a short and long term strategy.   Creating a clear strategy plan is vital for any long term improvement effort to be sustained.  Studies such as the AT Kearney study and results from the NAME award recipients (North American Maintenance Excellence) show that the best of the best have both a 1 and 5 year strategy plans.

Greg highlights key elements for developing a sustainable strategy:

  • Create a vision statement
  • Create short term plan
  • Create long term plan
  • Sustain change through engagement
  • Follow up

The Sustaining TPM video series has covered:

  1. Gain consensus on strengths and weaknesses
  2. Build a case for change
  3. Develop internal expertise
  4. Develop a strategy

These 4 steps provide the structure necessary to support your Total Productive Maintenance implementation initiative and will provide a strong foundation for success.  

I hope you find these steps valuable.  Please leave a comment below if you have any questions.

Best of luck.
