How an organization used Rapid Action - a structured process for engaging employees in rapid problem solving teams - to overcome strategic sourcing challenges they were facing across their supply chain.
In this edition of the Leap Technologies Newsletter:
ISM Canada (Information Systems Management - Canada) is a full service technology solutions company and a wholly owned subsidiary of IBM that employs more than 800 employees across western Canada. With a 40-year track record, ISM provides outsourced IT services including help desk, call support, application development, data architecture and big data analytics to a host of Fortune 500 and public sector organizations. In late 2018, ISM was looking for ways to accelerate execution of strategic priorities. ISM has mature, well-defined processes for meeting the needs of their customers but are continuing to raise the bar as customers demand more for less. They knew the best way to meet changing customer demands was to leverage the know-how and expertise of their own employees, so they reached out to Leap Technologies for a solution and collaborated to create a plan for using Rapid Action teams to more productively engage their people in solving problems. ISM launched their first wave of fully-supported Rapid Action Projects in February 2019 and are hitting the ball out of the ballpark. We are excited to continue our work with them throughout 2019 and beyond and look forward to driving results to the bottom line.
