Span of Control
As your teams begin to develop their problem solving skills and leaders are shifting to teacher/coaches in the system it is essential the team leader to team member ratio is correct. If the span of control is too large or small – leaders are not able to be successful teacher/coaches. The robust problem solving system that is implemented will surfacing problems and the span of control / team structure must be right to support solving those problems and leading team members to the next level of continuous improvement.
If you’re planning on implement The KCOE’s System Organizational Strategy – you already have a suggestion (solution) system in place, and are mostly likely planning for a perfect attendance system. The KCOE System calls for a compensation opportunity consisting of flexibility, perfect attendance, suggestions, and an overall profit sharing opportunity by meeting or exceeding balanced scorecard targets. When profit sharing is tied to the balanced scorecard each team member should know how they can positively impact the balanced scorecard targets and thus their bonus.
