Narrow down the ideas that are the most practical and effective. A helpful tool called a criteria matrix may be useful to look at items such as effectiveness, cost, risk, feasibility, etc.
Select the countermeasure to implement based on the overall evaluation of the proposed countermeasures.
Build consensus with others (Nemawashi) to achieve an increased level of speed and smoothness. Explain purpose, Target and overall problem solving process of Countermeasure.
Implement the Countermeasures
Create a clear and detailed action plan. When creating the action-plan, be sure to clearly identify the four W’s and two H’s of the countermeasures.
Who, What, Where, When, How & How much?
Helpful Hints: Identify an effective countermeasure that directly addresses the root cause. .
Avoid potential risks and prepare contingency plans for unforeseen changes.
Never give up. If you cannot achieve the expected results, try other measures. No matter what difficulties we may encounter, through ‘trial and error’ we must always make the best attempt and strive to take the next step forward.
