Self-directed workforces, or team-based workforces, are a great option to improve productivity, quality and employee satisfaction. Self-directed workforces also offer many benefits around supply-chain responsiveness, such as reducing inventory costs, reducing time-to-market, and improving product or service design.
To me self-directed workforces are more than an academic concept, I spent 5 years at GE’s Durham Engine Facility, a team-based workforce considered one of the crown jewels of GE Aircraft Engines.
I am available to provide consulting on implementation of self-directed workforces, either as a green field startup or at existing sites. Any inquiries or referrals, please contact me.
