See how your business operations are doing compared to your plan: and manage the differences (if any).
Make sure during your planning process that you consider operation or production constraints. Understand what slows your process down; then manage those constraints.
For example, if you have a workflow issue (too many 'touchpoints'), analyze the problem using DMAIC (define, measure, analyze, improve, control) and then streamline the process to enable increased efficiency - and less touchpoints.
