Make sure everyone sees the big picture. When people focus on efficiency in one part of a process, they sub-optimize the system as a whole — because they don’t weigh the impact of their actions on downstream groups or on the customer. To improve the flow, ensure everyone understands how their work fits together and how to prevent downstream defects through clearer handoffs, giving other departments sufficient lead time, and prioritizing based on overall goals.
If only life in business was this easy, a great read and implement. Don't put it into the too hard basket. We are all accountable in business for the outcomes.
