WHO IS COMPETITIVE DYNAMICS INTERNATIONAL?

Competitive Dynamics International (CDI) is an international consulting / training company with offices in Australia, Brazil, Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, New Zealand, Philippines, South Africa, United Kingdom and United States. We focus on assisting organizations in improving their productivity and achieving world-class competitiveness by creating a culture of genuine employee engagement through the implementation of our Mission-Directed Work Teams™ program. Presently, we have 3100 client sites in over 67 countries.



WHAT IS MISSION DIRECTED WORK TEAMS?

The Mission Directed Work Teams™ (MDW) program is a company-wide work system that combines world-class best practice with high employee involvement. MDW focuses on the implementation of proven “best practice” enabling teams, throughout the organization, to zero in on their customer’s needs and empowered to meet them. The result is a culture of teamwork, participation and continuous learning.

WHAT DISTINGUISHES MDW FROM OTHER PROCESS IMPROVEMENT OPTIONS?

MDW provides the melding of process improvement practices and actively engaged people. By providing the processes, structure, resources and sustainability features, MDW creates meaning and purpose for employees. MDW establishes the connection between the goals of the organization and the work people do each day.


HOW IS PERFORMANCE MEASURED?

Each level and team tracks certain key performance measures.

These are:

  • Quality
  • Speed
  • Cost
  • Safety
  • People
HOW IS THIS DONE?

A clear “line of sight” is established between the organizational strategy and the contributions of each team. Goals are determined for each performance measure. Triggers (corrective action deployment) are also set to provide quick and decisive problem solving and solution implementation. Measures and improvement actions are reviewed daily by each team in short pre-shift meetings.

IS MDW SUSTAINABLE?

Absolutely! This is definitely not the flavor of the month. MDW provides the structure, training, materials and support necessary to ensure sustainability. A key feature of MDW is formal external and/or internal coaching reviews, carried out regularly, to ensure the application of the new skills and the enculturation of those already learned. Each level of the organization is coached to help support this new, world class environment.
