  • Establish a non-blaming, "no finger pointing" culture so that employees will not hide problems.
  • Instead of penalizing employees for mistakes, ask them to come up with improvement projects and preventive measures.
  • Ask managers to spend the first 30 minutes of their working hours looking for improvement and preventive projects in their areas.
  • Start the working day with morning meetings with each work area discussing how to prevent yesterday's problems (if any) from occurring today.
  • Immediately share and spread company-wide all solutions and effective countermeasures discovered by any unit.
