Reliability Gap Assessment
Join Carl and Fred as they discuss doing a gap assessment, how it is done and why it is essential to achieving high reliability.
- The core principles of doing a gap assessment
- You need to know organizations capabilities, their shortcomings
- Where are you today? How good are you?
- With Reliability Strategic Vision, we ask “where are you going?”
- With Reliability Gap Assessment, we ask “what is your current capability?”
- Gaps can be organizational, cultural, methods
- To learn gaps in methods, you will ask: to what extent do you use (method)?, how do you use (method)?, why do you use (method)?, what examples for (method)?
- Knowing the gaps helps you zero in on the areas where you need to improve
- Essence of gap is the tension between your goals and the barriers or risks to achieving your goals
- There is not a canned list of question to identify gaps, you need to develop your own list of questions
- Fact finding: where are you today compared to where you need to be?
- Future decisions should be based on the gaps
- Communication is key to learning gaps
- Map gaps to the Maturity Matrix
- May need to change the culture to achieve reliability objectives
- Gap Assessment is not an audit
- You don’t know where a Gap Assessment will end up
