Explain why process improvement leads to product improvement.Process improvement focuses on improving an organization’s processes to achieve results more efficiently. The emphasis is not on “what to build” but on “how to build”. It reduces inefficiencies in processes to achieve same objectives with better utilization of resources. Process improvement highlights the following:
- Define organizational goals
- Identify organization’s clients
- Align processes to realize organizational goals in order to satisfy the clients.
All this leads to creation of a more efficient product to satisfy the clients better. Process improvement leads to product improvement as it removes inefficiencies from various processes to build a better quality product and in a more efficient manner.
