Process Improvement Team
“Teamwork divides the task and doubles the success.” — Unknown
What Is a Process Improvement Team?
A process improvement team involves individuals who have experience and knowlege of a process as well as an understanding of the problem(s) involved. They have a stake in the process and in finding a permanent and sustainable solution.
Teams can be as small as two people; however, they are generally larger to ensure a compatible combination of experience, knowledge, and skills is included. Team members work together to accomplish the team's goals and objectives.
Management will select the team leader. In conjunction with the leader, management will also select team members, determine team goals and objectives, provide resources, allocate time for team activities, and monitor team activities.
