A STRATEGY TO TAILOR PERFORMANCE INTERVENTIONS BASED ON THE NATURE OF ORGANISATIONAL MATURITY OF SOUTH MANUFACTURING FIRMS
Keywords:organisational maturity, performance improvement programmes, organisational performance factors, lean manufacturing, total productive maintenance, six sigma, integrated performance improvement programme
The South African automotive component manufacturing sector is facing global pressure to remain competitive. Performance improvement interventions are often deployed in manufacturing companies that are aimed at improving competitiveness. The high failure rate of these performance improvement interventions should be considered when developing a programme strategy for implementation. Consideration should be given to the organisation’s maturity and current performance when deciding which performance improvement intervention to select. The research objective was to establish the role of the organisational maturity variables in tailoring an integrated performance improvement intervention that develops organisational maturity and performance.
