Our culture is about accountability and continuous improvement.

IPIC is about accountability and continuous improvement. Our team consciously works together as one very large team to execute daily disciplines that demonstrate what a standard leader should exemplify.

Our basic disciplines rest on:

Understanding how people are actually delivering for customers.
Give people regular feedback and coaching.
Create a physically and emotionally safe environment where people can engage in meaningful dialogue about their work.
Teach people how to solve problems.

Define what leaders do—every day.

IPIC leaders start by defining very precisely what the behaviors involve, on a practical, day-to-day basis, for all levels. This creates clarity in terms of expectations from each position and objectives are spelled out.

Collaboration happens when each individual understands their objective, motivated to deliver the company vision and become the agents that carry out the mission.

Change isn’t just for everyone else—it’s for you.

DB AT IPIC, we teach our officers the value of servant leadership. Our leaders are taught that change is not for other people only, but it is for everyone. We avoid hierarchy wherein our leaders do not engage with shopfloor members. Our belief is for us to make effective decisions, we must understand what happens throughout the entire org by reaching out constantly, and allowing communication to flow quickly.

A leader’s standard work is so important for our top level as it provides essential feedback on what people at every level are actually doing: what’s working now, what could be working better, and what hasn’t even been properly tried yet. Those insights are critical to making better strategic and resource-allocation decisions. Second, it guides the team in their own work, allowing them to make better use of their time in solving high-level problems, developing their reports’ capabilities, and serving as role models for the rest of the organization.

Through the disciplines we have set out, we form a more reliable and dependable team. Once this is in order, continuous improvement comes more naturally. It becomes inherent into our system.
