When every department, team and section are working in harmony, the organization experiences a state of flow, of focus and dedication. Just as in different sporting activities, if the team coach, manager, physio, and the athletes themselves pursue a shared vision and goal, they break records. The organization becomes far more than the sum of its parts.
At the other end of the scale, if management has an invisible wedge between themselves and the workers, and different departments are infighting and passing the buck things can go wrong really quickly. In this situation the company becomes less than the sum of its parts, where deadlines are missed and accidents happen. This occurs regardless of how many ‘star players’ you have on paper.
An optimized SIMOPS process is so important
This basically sums up the importance of a robust SIMOPS policy. By getting an outside consultancy involved who specializes in SIMOPS, much of the normal politics and internal bureaucracy can be sidestepped.
When you call us in to handle any aspect of your simultaneous operations policy, we don’t recommend things because we favor one section of the organization over another. We make our recommendations impartially and emotion free, we make them because they are the best courses of action to take. The crew understand this, and many previous issues or tensions melt away.
This is not to say that you ought to bring us in if you already have problems, we can help any team harmonize better by creating improved processes. As each individual sees the benefit in each change, momentum grows and we move towards that winning team that the shareholders will reward you for.
We can help you at any stage of your SIMOPS development. We can train your existing staff through programs, courses and on-site training. If you already have a good process in place for this, and experienced people, you will still benefit from an audit and recommendation service. If you find that an existing department or team is not gelling together the way you would like, we can come and get them up to speed with the latest industry best practices by offering co-ordination and coaching.
