KEEP IT SIMPLE …… VALUE ADDED PDCA WORKS SMALL WONDERS
The road process improvement failure is lined with front line employees struggling with high tech statistics and Six Sigma. Productivity is built on employees using simple lean practices…. Team based problem solving involves simple skills such as 5S’s and root cause analysis. Traditionally boring tasks take place in cycles of process interruption and shoot from the hip firefighting. The same interruptive events and the same firefighting over and over again… Lean video trained employees dig deeper with PDCA problem solving which eliminates the same failure.. Productivity accumulates through cycles of Plan Do Check Act.. Each new cycle is another round of improvement in productivity.

Process interruption problem solving trained employees offer added value to themselves as well as the company..

PROTOTYPING AND SPREADING THE NEWS ABOUT WHAT WORKS
Outside ideas drive prototyping that is the heart and soul of lean idea networking… We need ideas from companies distributing lean training materials… Our workplace teams don’t just talk about possibilities… Talking about things is not good enough… It is our mindset that our teams must study and prototype lean material. It is key that teams find and spread the word about what works best from your lean material
OUTSIDE IDEAS RAISE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE STATUS QUO
In today’s world, everyday work should include the decisions about how things get done. By injecting new ideas into the workplace and making these decisions a part of everyday work employees become fully engaged… As ideas bounce around employees start to question the status quo and find themselves participating in shaping new group norms and even upgrading the culture.. Employees are encouraged to raise questions and debate how things get done, even debates about company values and beliefs.. It is OK to question how things work or why they don’t seem to work.. It is OK to express an opinion about things that are not working well and to have an opinion as to what should be done about it…. The magic comes about as employees and management achieve consensus and increase productivity…
