Standard Work

July 16th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

“Without Standard Work, there can be no improvement.” This statement is a central truth of the Toyota Production System. Standard work defines the current best work process. It is the baseline for continuous improvement and is a tool used in auditing processes. Therefore, conformance to standard work contributes to the results you need to stay competitive, but is something we really don’t want to do. Until you can apply repeatable standard work successfully, improvements will yield less than their full potential and backsliding will be prevalent.

Mapping for Business Process

October 8th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

Office processes provide the greatest opportunity for improvement since the majority of them are waste by definition! Office Process Mapping demonstrates how lean thinking can reduce office process timelines, and improve quality and delivery to schedule. Because we can not “see” office processes like on the manufacturing floor, mapping is a key improvement tool for the office side. In this session, participants will map out real business processes, participate in hands on exercises, and learn about pre and post mapping tools to add to your personal toolbox. Did you know 70% of process improvements are not sustained? We tend to focus on the process side and forget about the people side of change. Participants will learn a simple 3 steps process for change management and leave with an entire cache of tools to assist you through successful process improvement deployment and sustainment.
