Commitment Precedes All Great Achievements

Commitment System

Successful organizations are driven by people that make commitments to each other and then deliver on them.

A commitment system helps people from multiple departments on an operation to connect and collaborate while they develop a frontline work plan that all people on site can commit to. It then helps each of the teams to work together to execute this plan by providing a single view of what everyone needs to do and whether it is getting done, every shift.

Drawing each team’s work into a commitment system makes it easy for people to make commitments to each other in a visible and transparent way, and to see when these commitments have been met.

Why use a commitment system?

Operations that use commitment systems benefit because teams are able to trust in a comprehensive plan. Commitment systems:

  • enhance production
  • reduce costs
  • improve workplace safety
  • deliver world-class financial results.

How can a commitment system be implemented?

Many operations currently use a management operating system (MOS) or wiring system that is made up of spreadsheets, whiteboards and paper based tools. These “systems” have proven to be expensive, slow to implement and hard to sustain.

We have been converting the MOS and wiring tools used by sites around the world into effective commitment systems for more than 9 years now. Recently we have been able to do this for sites in a matter of weeks, quickly getting adoption and helping the team to achieve significant improvements in their results by making it possible for them to;

  • make reasonable commitments to each other
  • communicate commitments visibly across the site
  • see when commitments are fulfilled.
