Modelling continuous improvement maturity in the public sector: key stages and indicators

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article explores the challenges in ensuring that a continuous improvement (CI) culture is diffused throughout an organisation. It presents a model of CI maturity that has been developed following a review of literature and earlier empirical work undertaken across the UK public sector. The model is based on a set of eight organisational behaviours that can be used to gauge and guide organisational progress along three key stages of CI maturity: going through the motions, transforming and embedding.
