Leading a Successful Waste Walk
You’ve embarked on a Lean Journey, done some training, introduced tools, and conducted a few kaizen events. Now momentum has stalled due to the resources required to conduct major events. What do you do? This session introduces you to the concept of the waste walk. When used properly, this approach help leaders “see waste” in a way that identifies CI opportunities, both large and small. The smaller wastes can be dealt with quick, low-resource-requiring mini Kaizens. Learn how waste walks will not only fill the funnel but allow your leadership team to be integral in leading the charge.
