Day 6 – Revisit the Problem Bank

Dear Participants,


An innovation is one of those things that society looks at and says, “If we make this part of the way we live and work, it will change the way we live and work”.



Rule for Day 6 – Revisit the Problem Bank


The lack of collaboration between departments stifles innovation.  What can you do differently in your organization?


Revisit the problem bank which you have created and include the following problems along with the existing ones


  1. Problems which can be prevented with condition monitoring
  2. Problems which may arise when there is a change in any of the 6M areas.


Get your team to review all the problems in the problem bank. A good company maintains a problem bank on its intranet to solicit comments from its work force. As the problems keep getting solved, they can be replaced with new, unsolved problems.
