Work-based Project: RACE in action
Instructions to participant You are required to use the RACE process for continuous improvement with the support, cooperation and involvement of your work team. In reality, it may not always be possible to use the complete process over the assessment period. For this reason we have provided means whereby you can respond to the Change and Evaluation stages of RACE with a theoretical, rather than practical response. However, the first two stages – Research and Action are to be responded to with real life, on-the-job activity. Stage 1 of RACE: Research In consultation with your team, determine at least 1 key work process to research with an aim to improve it based on what your research uncovers. Activities: You must meet with your team to decide upon what processes/work tasks you will monitor and research to determine what improvements can be made. The processes/work tasks you select must directly relate to benefitting the customer in some way You must conduct research on how you and your team currently carry out your nominated work tasks for a period of no less than 2 weeks You must display your data in at least one of the methods outlined in your workbook Focus: Team involvement & participation Accuracy or research and data presentation Outputs to be submitted: Agenda and Minutes from at least one team meeting where the above activity was discussed and agreed upon involving your team Research data Photocopies of all Research section workbook activities that display icon A one-page report that outlines: The process/work tasks you chose to research and why What specific functions you researched and why Your research protocols (benchmark, bet practice) How you involved and communicated with your team.
Stage 2 of RACE: Action You must meet with your team at least once to brainstorm, plan and potentially decide upon some improvement activities for the processes/work tasks you have researched. Activities: You must meet with your team after your research period to review your research and use this to brainstorm potential improvements. Please consider the workbook information on a supportive meeting agenda and meeting environment You must use at least one of the three brainstorming techniques outlined in your workbook Focus: Openness, inclusion, review and creativity Outputs to be submitted: Meeting minutes and agenda All brainstorming/problem solving materials (real or copied) generated in your meeting(s) A brief overview of the agreed upon resolutions A brief report on what you did to (a) create an open, consultative meeting environment and (b) involve and motivate your team Photocopies of all Action section workbook activities that display icon
Stages 3 and 4 of RACE: Change/Evaluation REAL CHANGE/EVALUATION: If you and your team have resolved to implement some changes to your processes/work tasks, please do so and complete all the following activities accordingly. SIMULATED CHANGE/EVALUATION: If you met and resolved to leave things as they are, or to implement changes outside the assessment period for this module, please respond to the following case study and produce assessment outputs: Your team have determined to make your worksite safer by proposing to conduct weekly safety hazard inspections of all work areas, as well as bi-monthly evacuation drills. This is in response to a recent spate of workplace injuries due in the main to hazards being left around that have caused team member injuries. Your proposal involves conducting team member training sessions, as well as first aid training for a minimum number of team members. At the moment, no-one is first aid trained. There were such team members but all have left after last year’s round of redundancies. Activities: Format a proposal for nominated stakeholders (e.g. senior people outside the direct team) to either inform or request support for your proposed changes. Please use the proposal format as outlined in your workbook, or one of your organisation’s approved versions. Provide an outline of your proposed Change and Evaluation processes. These must detail the following: – What you and your team will be doing to implement and evaluate your proposed workplace changes. Please include a timeline with milestones, as well as key evaluation methods – Which team members required training, coaching or mentoring – either to implement change or as part of the change process you are proposing
