HP Indigo found itself struggling with a number of operational challenges. First, the time spent dealing with escalations was far too lengthy and they needed to reduce it, significantly. Second, there was a need to drive greater openness among team members and engender a true culture shift towards one of assuming accountability. And third, interfaces between the Tier 4 World Wide Escalation team and the company’s Tier 3 team were in need of major improvement. The company sought out the technology and consulting services of Shamaym to respond to these challenges and drive exciting cultural and practical changes, using its innovative technological tol and debriefed-based learning model.
The Shamaym team built a debriefed-based learning model for the Tier 4 World Wide Escalation Team, which included weekly team and 1:1 meetings with the company’s employees. The program was held over the course of 3 months, and focused on enabling the team to learn from escalations. The escalation process was defined as the “flight” and each team member was debriefed as part of closing the escalation. Once a week, the team presented two debriefings at the team meeting. The team managers went over the high-level team results, fostering an open and honest learning environment that would ultimately drive productivity and efficiency.
HP Indigo’s Escalation Team underwent a significant cultural change, which, in turn, drove actionable results with respect to its daily practices and operations.
30% more employees felt comfortable sharing about their mistakes openly
18% increase in knowledge sharing between team members
27% improvement in implementation of team members’ lessons
