Optimized People Development Systems

The OPDS mapping exercise was a key part of understanding the current state of our processes and it is imperative that you know and understand this so that you can reconstruct a system that will lead to improvement. - Mid South Wire Operations Manager David Roos

TMEP’s Optimized People Development System (OPDS) is a leadership framework focused on continuous improvement for your organization's internal workforce processes utilizing systems thinking, applying lean concepts, and promoting the growth of a learning organization. 

In today's competitive landscape, untapped human potential leads to missed growth opportunities, decreased innovation, and limited organizational agility. Manufacturers grappling with challenges like inconsistent staffing, high turnover, and a disengaged workforce need a strategic solution. 

The five functional areas of the People Development System make up a network of multiple interconnections and relationships. Information, communication, relationships, and more flow through this system. Seeing the whole system can often present improvement opportunities that might be left unseen otherwise.
