With OQM® you concentrate on principles, not trends

Simply copying the measures of successful organizations often doesn’t lead to the desired results. We help you find the right lever and not chase after the latest management fads.

With OQM® you concentrate on the Minimum Factor

It makes more sen­se to learn the uni­ver­sal princi­ples behind suc­cess­ful orga­ni­za­ti­ons than to sim­ply copy methods or models, then to exami­ne one’s own orga­ni­za­ti­on in that light and deve­lop indi­vi­du­al mea­su­res to work on the­se princi­ples.

Ima­gi­ne your orga­ni­za­ti­on as a lar­ge bar­rel which is made up of indi­vi­du­al woo­den staves. To be more exact, out of eight woo­den staves which rep­re­sent the eight are­as which are vital for the qua­li­ty of an orga­ni­za­ti­on. Usual­ly the­se qua­li­ty cha­rac­te­ris­tics are pre­sent in dif­fe­ring strengths in an orga­ni­za­ti­on, cor­re­spon­din­gly the woo­den staves in our examp­le are of dif­fe­rent lengths.
What hap­pens now when you pour water into this bar­rel? The bar­rel holds the water until the water lever reaches the shor­test stave. Then it runs over. Regard­less of how long the other staves are – the shor­test is always the limi­ting fac­tor. So it makes sen­se to leng­t­hen the shor­test stave.

That’s why OQM® initi­al­ly focu­ses all mea­su­res on the weakest area of an orga­ni­za­ti­on: the Mini­mum Fac­tor.
