By Applying the SIT thinking tool Division – the stages of the ATM process were randomly changed and virtual processes were generated. One of these options placed the “refund the bank” stage immediately after the “realizing there’s an imbalance” stage.
The Brink’s team realized that negotiations following each recorded imbalance were excessive. One monthly meeting, covering all imbalances throughout the month, would not only reduce the time and energy consumed, but also decrease the need to pass money back and forth, since in most cases the imbalances balanced each other in the long run. The implementation of this approach was extremely well received by both Brink’s employees and clients, and helped fortify Brinks’ position in the banking sector.
