Change can be both positive and negative

One of the great benefits of mapping processes is that it promotes consistency in the way we work.

A predictable method of working is one of the key segments in delivering a reliable item. On the off chance that the nature of the item is additionally worthy, at that point there shows up no motivation to transform anything.

A genuine case of this happened in an organization where a group on a production line thought of a speedier method of gathering a sub-get together (a unit collected independently yet intended to be consolidated with different units into a bigger fabricated item) utilizing a quality circle. 

Lamentably the following stage in the production line couldn't deal with the expansion underway and supplies of the sub-gathering developed. The appropriate response might have been to see how to build the pace of gathering of the following stage to completely use the expansion in sub-get together creation. The issue with this was that the pace of creation of the last gathering was more than equipped for fulfilling client needs. In this way, an expansion underway would have implied expanded stocks in the stockroom and henceforth expanded expenses for the organization. So truth be told, a positive change at an environment level brought about a negative change at the large scale level.
