Process improvement

Speed up your process improvement flow through faster approvals

It can take very long to get the right people to approve even small process improvements. This can kill your continuous improvement effort if it’s not adressed.

What if process owners could send and manage approvals in a simple, closed-loop flow? Our tests suggest that it could reduce approval and management time and raise improvement numbers by 10x.

In this webinar we will introduce Gluu’s major upgrade to how approvals are handled. Join to learn how to:

  • engage every employee in giving improvement suggestions.
  • find the right balance between speed and governance.
  • run a more efficient approval flow by semi-automating it.
