Running a Pilot

One of the best ways to start implementing LAP is by running an internal pilot. This helps establish the process and ensures teams work collaboratively towards organizational goals.

Steps to Run a Successful Pilot

  1. Identify Teams: Select internal teams to participate in the pilot.
  2. Set Clear Goals: Define clear, measurable goals for the pilot.
  3. Provide Training: Ensure all team members understand LAP principles.
  4. Facilitate Collaboration: Encourage cross-team collaboration and communication.
  5. Monitor Progress: Regularly review progress and make adjustments as needed.
  6. Evaluate Results: Assess the pilot’s success and identify areas for improvement.

Real-Life Examples and Practical Tips

Example 1: Internal Pilot Success

One organization we worked with decided to run an internal pilot between their IT and marketing teams. By aligning these teams and implementing LAP principles, they were able to:

  • Reduce Procurement Time: Cut down procurement time by 40%.
  • Improve Collaboration: Foster better communication and collaboration between departments.
  • Increase Efficiency: Streamline processes, leading to significant cost savings.

Example 2: Customer Collaboration

Another client used LAP to collaborate with a key customer on a new product. Through our facilitation and guidance, they achieved:

  • Faster Time-to-Market: Brought the product to market 30% faster than previous methods.
  • Enhanced Partner Relationships: Built stronger, more productive relationships with their customer.
  • Higher ROI: Achieved a higher return on investment by reducing waste and focusing on value delivery.

Practical Tips for Success

  • Engage Early: Involve all stakeholders from the beginning to ensure buy-in and smooth implementation.
  • Clear Communication: Maintain open and transparent communication throughout the process.
  • Continuous Improvement: Regularly review and refine the process based on feedback and results.
  • Use Technology: Leverage tools and technology to support LAP implementation and tracking.
