So, what’s Lean anyhow? Lean Management is the method which creates an efficient process flow by eliminating nonvalue-adding activities. This concept applies to any type and size of business or industry and has been used by some of the largest companies in the world. These concepts are simple to apply and easy to benefit from. 

This Month:

Do you want to learn more about problem solving and presentations? Brian Hudson from Franciscan Health will be sharing his expertise.

A3 problem solving is a structured problem-solving and continuous-improvement approach, first employed at Toyota and typically used by lean manufacturing practitioners. In is now used in all industries and organizations, both large and small. It provides a simple and strict procedure that guides problem solving by workers. The approach typically uses a single sheet of ISO A3 size paper, which is the source of its name.

The A3 problem solving tool is a great way to organize your projects as an individual and as a team. It also gives you a way to explain your project from beginning to end. You will leave this meeting ready to put your first A3 in place.
