Continuous
Improvement
A
s we head into the spring of 2022, the Aircraft
Electronics Association is transitioning from
a two-year exercise in drafting a strategic
plan into the subcommittee activities of addressing the topics
raised. Last year, while I was traveling to and from various
industry events, I read The Innovator's Dilemma: When New
Technologies Cause Great Firms to Fail written by Clayton
Christensen. While the book was primarily focused on the
effects of " disruptive technologies, " a term Christensen coined
in 1995, I found a parallel between these two seemingly
unrelated activities: They both are related to continuous
improvement.
The American Society for Quality defines continuous
improvement as " Continuous improvement, sometimes
called continual improvement, is the ongoing improvement
of products, services or processes through incremental
and breakthrough improvements. These efforts can seek
'incremental' improvement over time or 'breakthrough'
improvement all at once. " ASQ further points out that " some
quality practitioners make the following distinction:
Continual improvement: A broader term preferred by W.
Edwards Deming to refer to general processes of improvement
and encompassing 'discontinuous' improvements - that is,
many different approaches, covering different areas.

Knowing that continuous improvement
is foundational, what are you doing
for improvement? More importantly,
what is your business doing for
continuous improvement?
Continuous improvement: A subset of continual
improvement, with a more specific focus on linear,
incremental improvement within an existing process. Some
practitioners also associate continuous improvement more
closely with techniques of statistical process control. "
While I would not argue with Deming, for our purposes in
this month's column, the simple definition of an " incremental
improvement within an existing process " will suffice.
Who would not want an incremental improvement in your
life, your finances, your relationships, or your business? I
find the concept of continuous improvement to be on par with
motherhood and apple pie; it's a universal belief that is hard
to question. Knowing that continuous improvement is foundational,
what are you doing for improvement? More importantly,
what is your business doing for continuous improvement?
