Building and Sustaining a Culture of Quality
Division: All - Tools/Skills
Many lean practitioners started their journey applying the tools of lean. Before long, it was obvious that these tools could not sustain within an organization on their own. This realization set practitioners off into various directions in search of the missing link to successful sustainment of operational excellence. Training within industry (TWI), a hands-on learning and teaching program, helped one organization bridge the gap that existed in learning and teaching. As processes were analyzed, Hosin Kanri, a strategy deployment tool, helped define and flow high-level objectives down through the organization, ensuring alignment of tactical activities to strategic goals. Kata, the scientific pattern of thinking identified by Mike Rother in his book Toyota Kata, ties them all together by providing a practical application of scientific thinking to pursue the challenging goals of an organization and enable teams to be better at improving, adapting, and innovating.
While lean tools, TWI, Hoshin Kanri, and kata are all great in their own rights, join us for this informative session to learn how working together they are nothing short of amazing!
