What is it ?

RAMMPP is an easy-to-use chart that helps teams to recognize the ‘low hanging fruit’ in the clutter and inefficiency that sneaks into our daily activities.

RAMMPP allows the team to seize easy-to-do opportunities to help increase efficiency.

RAMMPP focuses attention on:

  • Reports
  • Approvals
  • Meetings
  • Measures
  • Policies
  • Practices

When is it used?

RAMMPP is used:

  • To produce more time for people, teams and departments in organizations
  • When burdensome bureaucracy and administration occurs
  • To increase effectiveness and GET THINGS DONE

Advantages

RAMMPP is:

  • Easy-to-use yet very effective
  • Creates necessary time for other matters
  • Creates times for involved problem solving
  • Team gets a feeling of a ‘quick win’

Pitfalls

  • If ‘in department’ approach is adopted, ensure internal customers are in the loop
  • Staying in a ‘functional silo’. This technique helps reduce waste across business processes

Process

  • Before a meeting/occurrence ask people to think about what they are accountable/responsible for in relation to RAMMPP headings
  • Bring the team together and explain RAMMPP chart
  • Record the activities of the team, individual, department, company or external (Maximum of 5 for each individual to avoid overload)
  • Populate the matrix
  • Work down the matrix, on row at a time, and explore with the team what changes could be made to the way of doing things at the moment (Use the rating scale below)
  • Capture agreements and commitments as you work through the matrix
  • On completion, summarize the actions and set up a review date
