Continuous Improvement (CI) has been investigated in the literature from different perspectives: the tools that support CI, the competitive capabilities that allow organizations to learn, innovate and renew, the impact that CI produces on performance, and the influence exerted by contingencies in the relationships between CI and Performance. What still lacks is an overall perspective that at the same time considers CI – in terms of tools and abilities – performance and contingencies. The purpose of this article is to empirically evaluate the validity of a Continuous Improvement framework trough the simultaneous assessment of CI abilities, tools, contingencies and performance. The evaluation has been performed using a Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) analysis and empirical data from the second international continuous improvement survey

Abstract

Continuous Improvement (CI) has been investigated in the literature from different perspectives: the tools that support CI, the competitive capabilities that allow organizations to learn, innovate and renew, the impact that CI produces on performance, and the influence exerted by contingencies in the relationships between CI and Performance. What still lacks is an overall perspective that at the same time considers CI – in terms of tools and abilities – performance and contingencies. The purpose of this article is to empirically evaluate the validity of a Continuous Improvement framework trough the simultaneous assessment of CI abilities, tools, contingencies and performance. The evaluation has been performed using a Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) analysis and empirical data from the second international continuous improvement survey
