As the saying goes, the best-laid plans often go awry. The same is true in business for organizations that set out to execute strategies designed to deliver great promise. The problem is that even sound business strategies can fall short. The failure often can be attributed to strategic plans that do not build in a positive accountability system that provide enough reinforcement to initiate and sustain the new behavior required, especially when the new behavior is replacing long-standing habits. ADI uses its behavioral roadmapping process to identify and build in the required behaviors at all levels to support the strategy while carefully considering other initiatives that may compete with the new strategy. We help you integrate a behavioral approach that begins with leadership engagement to ensure successful follow-through.

In today’s business environment, organizations understand the importance of dong what it takes to ensure a safe workplace. While most say they value safety and have initiatives in place to help ensure safety, safety initiatives are not enough to prevent safety incidents. To create a proactive workplace safety culture, the actions and decisions at all levels, from management to the frontline, must be identified and reinforced. ADI supports clients in understanding and applying the science of human behavior to proactively manage safety and to create a culture of safe habits.

Lean and Six Sigma initiatives are implemented in an effort to make and sustain process improvements and reduce the probability that an error or defect will occur. While these quality management tools and practices are intended to improve business processes, the gains made in process improvements often are not sustained.

We work with clients to define and integrate feedback and positive reinforcement into the process to ensure new habits are built and solidified to support the new behaviors required. Let ADI help you instill lasting habits by building reinforcement into new processes and behavior.
All organizational processes and procedures rely on behavior—the actions of employees to implement or support desired outcomes. An organization’s operational efficiency is oftentimes impacted by variance in performance, and more specifically, variance in human performance. This neglected variance limits the value you are getting from your resources. ADI helps organizations eliminate or reduce this human variance by earning the discretionary effort of your workforce. We work with clients to assess the variance in human performance and then build in positive reinforcement from multiple sources to recognize and strengthen incremental improvements. Let ADI’s performance improvement consultants help you use a science-based approach to fine-tune the human performance elements that might be constraining your operational efficiency.
System and Process Alignment
Performance systems and processes are valuable tools for directing and motivating the performance of your employees. These systems, along with the feedback and reinforcement provided by leaders, should all be aligned so that they provide a consistent message to your workforce about what is valued in your organization. Unfortunately, sometimes these systems are set up and then forgotten. When neglected, these systems can become antiquated, punishing, or simply tolerated because that‘s the way things have always been done. When adjustment are made to some systems but not others, or when the strategy of the organization changes, they can become misaligned. Like a car with wheels out of alignment, misaligned systems can pull effort and practices in the wrong direction or fight for control of the workforce’s attention. ADI works with clients to use a science-based approach to calibrate and align performance systems, ensuring that they are practical, equitable, and support the performance that matters most to your organization. Let ADI help you scientifically calibrate your systems and processes to maximize performance. Learn more about how ADI supports clients with System and Process Alignment...
