Square Wheels is a brilliant organizational alignment tool created by Dr. Scott Simmerman from Performance Management company, USA. This series of illustrations represents the simplest and most powerful way to involve and engage people in improving process and implementing change. It is a great vehicle for facilitating interactive discussions, developing creative problem solving skills and for improving communications among people at every level of the organization. With over 300 illustrations in the series, it has many possible uses and applications.
Square Wheels toolkits are easy-to-use and complete tools for supervisors and managers and team leaders. The goal is simple: Use the included illustrations and worksheets to involve and engage your people in workplace improvement and improve the sharing of ideas and opportunities.
This Square Wheels One illustration introduces people to the idea of using a cartoon to represent the organization and its processes. This first illustration generates lots of discussions and ideas. Other illustrations in the series are then used to lead the group on a journey of creativity, quality, teamwork and communications with a goal of generating active involvement and participation. This is an inexpensive but terrific organizational alignment tool for opening a meeting. More importantly, it can be used as a foundation for creating discussions that can lead to making improvements!
This toolkit is clear and straightforward and sets up the opportunity for groups of people to share their ideas about what things might be improved and how things might be done differently. You’ll find it to be a great exercise for asking for ideas and listening to suggestions and one that can lay a foundation for a language of identifying “Square Wheels” and “Round Wheels.”
