15World-Class Management Daily Management:Leaders Have Two JobsRun your businessImprove your businessDaily ManagementSo what is Daily Management? It is what leaders are doing everyday and how they act every day to meet customer demand and identify and solve problems with their team.Know at a glance status of daily workCompleting planned workUnderstand status of upstream and downstream processesVariance from standard work and causesWhat action to take when variance occurs (countermeasures)Engage the staff to take action
16The FIVE Principle Elements of Daily Management (Standard Work for Leaders) Visual ControlsCreate linked visual systems that drive actionDaily Accountability ProcessEstablish rounding process at all levelsLeader Standard WorkLeaders routinely complete key activities necessary to run and improve their businessDisciplineLeaders consistently verify the health of processes and systemsRoot Cause AnalysisAsking “why” and using data and analysis to attack problemsThisOr ThisAs we looked at these metrics, and went back to our Toyota training and readings to see what we were missing, we realized that we had tacked the tools and methods from Toyota onto our existing management methods. Emphasis on plural as we had as many methods as we had managers. No wonder our managers were telling us that they were too busy to do their improvement work. We hadn’t fundamentally changed how we were running our organization. And we certainly weren’t all doing our work as leaders in a standardized way.What we learned when we went back to our training is that we had neglected to understand the importance of having all of the components of what Toyota calls a “world class management system” in place in order to allow us to create an environment where we could both make the improvements and sustain them.
