Pilots Are For Doubters, Naysayers, and Obstructionists
New process or new initiative pilots are good for certain supply management ventures but don’t procrastinate or extend them out ad infinitum. It’s a good way for the resistance to kill you off. The burden of proof is 51 percent or reasonable. It’s not beyond a reasonable doubt or a 12-0 unanimous jury vote. If you use the later criteria you will never have a successful pilot. Make sure one person is accountable for the pilot beachhead and can understand the total picture. Folks love experiments, but remember that the first rule of experiments is to have controls!
If you get consensus in a kaizen, change the process, change it right away! Do not lose momentum.
