Bottom Up

Figure 8.6 Audit/review process: Linking team objectives to the TPM

Figure 8.7 Top-down champion role/process

These priorities are linked to the future business vision through the use of a continuous improvement master plan. The master plan is simply a summary of intentions laid out against the predictable stages of the TPM change programme. These are shown in Table 8.2.

The master plan also integrates pillar champion activities to deliver a single agenda for change. Each milestone of the plan provides a quality check that the management team are pulling together. Progress towards each milestone is monitored and supported by the quarterly top-down audit coaching process. This looks for evidence of progress bottom-up to highlight where top-down policy is effective or needs support (see Table 8.2).
