The framework is based on stuff that worked a couple of years ago for a couple of large companies. These companies used continuous improvement techniques to develop the methods that we have now copied into the framework, and they have also evolved on from there. Unfortunately continuous improvement is old news and difficult to sell, so our framework carefully omits the underlying philosophy and jumps straight into product portfolio management with a dozen new roles and committees. As we all know, past practice is best practice!
Despite the fact that 99,9% of all companies are significantly smaller and are facing different problems, we believe that these practices will be useful for all companies. If some practices turn out not to be useful, then the framework can of course be tailored. In fact, we recommend that you tailor the framework before you deploy it. If you feel that the framework is so complicated that you don’t understand how it works, we recommend the services of our cadre of trained and certified ARSe™ Holistic Organizational-Lean Educators.
Don’t hesitate to contact us for more information. We hope it will work for you, too!
Have a nice day – April 1st, 2014 that is!
