What It Means To Iterate

IterateSM

   your best next step

 

To iterate is to take the next most intelligent step from here, learn from it, and repeat.  If you run a management team, that's exactly what you need them to do: constantly learn, constantly adjust, and never stop moving your organization toward its goals, a step at a time.

When they fail to do this, you get silos, infighting, and waste. 

When they succeed, you get a team that's fast, flexible and focused - one that responds quickly to issues, shifts resources intelligently as things change, and keeps an eye on priorities and results. 

Iterative ManagementSM

   five key practices

 

High performing, highly flexible management teams differ from each other in many ways, but they do have something in common: The Five Key Practices of Iterative ManagementSM. Learning these practices and applying them within your own management team is the best way to increase performance, reduce stress, and position your whole organization for success in an ever-changing future.

Transform Management

   at every level

 

If you're an executive overseeing middle and/or senior managers, Iterative ManagementSM will tear down silos. Your organization will stop competing for your attention and start working together in pursuit of the goals you've laid out.

If you're a manager of middle managers, Iterative ManagementSM will increase results-focused collaboration across your organization. You'll get out the business of refereeing turf wars and into position to drive the higher level output your leadership demands.

If you're a manager of front line supervisors, Iterative ManagementSM will help your team coordinate their output and make better forecasts. You'll have better information to bring to your management and a team that's better equipped to deliver on your commitments.

 

Iteration

   is practical

 

Iterative ManagementSM isn't about abstract theories. It's an operational approach to running a management team that keeps the organization on track and coordinated. It's how the highest performing organizations are managing themselves today, even though they don't all realize it! To run a fast, flexible, focused management team, you need practical action steps, not abstract theories.

Ed Muzio has been called “one of the planet’s clearest thinkers on management practice" – and that’s by someone who would know, the editor of an international business magazine.

His books have won Awards of Excellence in the performance improvement field, and his work on culture change has been hailed for producing substantial results even in the most challenging circumstances. Originally trained as an engineer, Ed has started organizations large and small, led global initiatives in technology development and employee recruitment, and published articles and papers on a variety of business topics, from manufacturing strategy to the relationship between individual skills and team output. 

Prior to founding Group Harmonics in 2004, Ed was President and Executive Director of a human services organization, and a leader, mentor, and technologist within Intel Corporation and the Sematech consortium. A Cornell University graduate, Ed's accomplishments include the creation and stewardship of a worldwide manufacturing infrastructure program, a nationally-recognized engineering development organization, and a non-profit residential services provider serving at-risk youth in his home town of Albuquerque, NM.
