Phase 5 Group Publishes E-Book to Help Companies Commit to CI

Guide Aimed at Organizations Reluctant to Adopt Continuous Improvement Management

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - March 31, 2015) - Phase 5 Group, an industry leader in the field of continuous improvement (CI) management, today announced it is releasing a new guide aimed at helping companies that are struggling to make a commitment to CI. The e-book, When Perfection Hinders Progress: Why You Need to Commit to CI Today, is available for free download at

The operations leaders of many organizations are reluctant to pull the trigger on a substantive CI investment, instead waiting for optimal conditions that often never arrive. Although careful consideration is naturally important when evaluating a CI deployment, there can be significant costs for businesses that choose to delay implementation or simply do nothing. Phase 5's new e-book explores the consequences of not immediately embracing continuous improvement and offers advice on how to overcome the paralysis some companies feel. Also, the guide details three managing processes that are critical to CI sustainability:

  • Site strategy setting
  • Gap to perfect analysis
  • Fundamentals implementation

"When it comes to CI, many companies are like surfers who have waded out into the ocean but remain plastered to their boards while waiting for the perfect wave," says Roger Price, CEO of Phase 5 Group. "Operations leaders are hesitant to start a CI journey that underwhelms the organization, or they don't want anything to go wrong with the rollout. But perfect planning isn't the answer; companies are better off with a strong CI strategy than none at all. Our e-book helps alleviate the concerns that operations leaders might have."
