Your Output Is Really An Input
To some downstream operations.
To some “receiving system.”
So when you begin with the end in mind – think one step past that, your end, to the handoff to one operations past that, or to one downstream customer past that.
Or to multiple downstream operations and/or customers.
Begin with the Receiving Systems in Mind
Not your end point.
Not the handoff point.
Begin with understanding the needs and wants downstream – of your customer – and their stakeholders.
What are their requirements of your outputs as their inputs?
And then understand what your stakeholders require – and want – of your Products and the Processes that produce them.
And then Plan and Execute and Adjust accordingly.
