          Lean improvement involves both tactical and strategic efforts for high performance impact.
          Tactical work is a term used to describe the actions that support day-to-day operations. Lean organizations make use of Daily Management systems, a structured process to focus employee’s actions to continuously improve their day-to-day work.

              We’re living through some crazy times and dealing with issues that were not anticipated during planning sessions.  Every day we’re confronted with new information, new analyses of facts and opinions, creating new decisions that need to be made that can dramatically impact our lives.  The organizations, and individuals, that are handling the chaos (or opportunity!)

                In the words of improvement expert Tomo Sugiyama, in The Improvement Book, "practice makes permanent, not perfect". Or to paraphrase Deming Prize winner Ryuji Fukuda from Managerial Engineering, "Before you practice, first be sure you are learning from a good teacher". Practicing a bad golf swing does not improve it. Too many organizations spend millions for new technology, but then skimp on training employees how to use it. Perhaps this is because the technology is an “investment,” but training is an “expense.”

                  On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.

                    Factories are controlled environments, designed to put out consistent products in volumes according to a plan. Controls, however, are never perfect, and managers respond to series of events of both internal and external origin. An event is an instantaneous state change, with a timestamp but no duration. An operation on a manufacturing shop floor is […]
