Project Rehearsal

Project Rehearsal

TITLE HERE

Deliver a supply chain management project that is considered a success but also adds value to the company as a whole.


The Challenge
More than 50% of implementations intended to support global supply chain management fail to deliver hoped for business benefits. Project management skill was a major factor in the success of these projects.

The Rehearsal
This rehearsal was designed to develop project manager’s skill in navigating tough problems. The team had to deploy an ERP system to manage the supply chain and add assemblies in a new country mid-stream. The company would not pay for the IT solution unless business benefits were realized.

Value Delivered
Participants following this exercise were able to manage project challenges two levels above their current ranking. This increase in skill represents about five years’ experience on the job. The rehearsal itself lasted only 12 hours.

Health Insurance

TITLE HERE

A non-profit insurance provider serving a region of New York State was looking for ways to better serve its largely low-income, minority population.


The Challenge
To provide better quality preventative care for its clients, the company needed to coordinate with doctors to develop better identification procedures and preventative care systems that have mutual benefit to the company and the practices. These two entities often have opposing accountabilities, with few opportunities for better patient outcomes. They sought to implement a model of preventative care that has been shown to drastically improve heath outcome disparities, but has had little success in implementation due to bottlenecks in the health care system.

The Rehearsal
Participants ran through the strategic rehearsal event two times. On the first day they were unable to develop an adequate solution to the challenge, replicating the bottlenecks encountered in real life. On the second day, however, they were able to develop adequate identification and coordination solutions to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes while delivering better quality care to patients.

Value Delivered
By transcending traditional divisions based on non-integrated accountabilities, the Rehearsal was able to help Payers and Practices develop workable solutions to long standing bottlenecks in the implementation of the preventive care model.

Transit

TITLE HERE

Implement a new IT system oriented towards proactive, cycle-based maintenance to replace the old reactive model in place. Increase “mean distance between failure” rates of bus health and repair efficiency.


The Challenge
Bus and Subway Maintainers of the New York City Transit Authority was about to experience a 10% increase in ridership while facing $300 million budget cut to their operating and maintenance divisions. The software was needed to help with these challenges but previous IT implementations of this scale had very little success.

The Rehearsal
The goal of the new system is not to save money or reduce costs, but rather to develop an accurate and detailed history of train repairs. Participants were to rehearse their business as usual using the computer system and repairing replica subway cars. In doing this, participants were able to see the value of the software and the outcomes of using it.

Value Delivered
Normally resistant workers became supportive of the new IT Implementation. Rather than requiring the expected 12 months for implementation, the hourly staffed reached independence with the system in two weeks and line supervisors managed in weeks.
