The Lean Auditor Knowledge Worker “Never mistake motion for action.” Ernst Hemingway We’re here eight hours and we’ll be back tomorrow, let’s get that coffee.
I just don’t have enough time in the workday to go to all the meetings and respond to the emails!
My priority list today is the same as it was yesterday. Did the earth really move? As a result of this experiential learning and implementation method, participants will recover 4 to 8 hours of wasted time per week that can be applied to Value Work. Lean is the essence of first asking before doing anything “Why are we doing this?” Lean originated from Kaizen, a holistic approach founded in the Toyota Production System (TPS) to making the business more efficient and effective in everything accomplished for the Customer. It is grounded in the principle as stated by its founder Taiichi Ohno: “All we are doing is looking at the time line from the moment the customer gives us an order to the point when we collect the cash. And we are reducing that time line by removing non-value added wastes.”
This program is designed to help individuals and workgroups of Knowledge Workers get their work done more effectively utilizing Lean Principles, eliminating the 8 Wastes or “Muda”. The unique delivery model is a hybrid of group sessions and individual coaching. Following the group sessions, the Facilitator coaches each individual to lean their environments and processes. Then they establish “personal operating policies” that ensures that the right work is done at the right time in the best way, in support of corporate strategies. Takeaways
