As an organization learns and improves it is important to have a common road map to guide these efforts throughout the organization.
Aimi accelerates innovation and improvement, and is built on the Model for Improvement, a comprehensive framework for learning and making change within an organization.
Project charters in Aimi help implement the Model for Improvement and assist in team selection, sponsorship, and project management.
Developing a plan for a change and criteria to measure improvements, leads to the use of the PDSA cycle as an efficient trial and learning methodology.
The PDSA cycle involves four phases: Plan (the test is developed), Do (the test is executed, observed, and data is collected), Study (the data is studied and compared to current knowledge), and Act (changes are made based on the new knowledge).
Aimi guides your team through this process making sure that the tests are documented, managed, and the implementations are sustained.
The Model for Understanding Success in Quality (MUSIQ) is a framework to determine the viability of Quality Improvement (QI) projects and used to see where further support may be needed to make quality improvement efforts more effective.
Aimi integrates MUSIQ to assess your projects in several broad categories including the team working on the project, the microsystem in which they function, local QI support and capacity, the organization in which you work, and the environment external to your organization.
Aimi is focused on change and developing, testing, implementing, and spreading changes. The Model for Improvement creators have come up with 72 change concepts to assist and group change initiatives.
Change concepts are there to save time to trigger specific ideas and innovation and are an integral part of Aimi helping you to run effective improvement projects and PDSA Cycles.
