Problem Solving Made Easy
Problems are everywhere. Optimistic people like to call these opportunities. Whatever your outlook, learning an efficient way to solve problems will help you in all aspects of life and work. We can take you through a simple process of defining your problems so they can be solved using 4W,2H and 1C. Once you are clear on the problem, we show you how to use 5 Why’s, Fishbone or effective Brainstorming to solve your “opportunities” so they don’t come back.
Standard Work is not so Standard.
Have you ever had the same problem come back again and again? It can be so frustrating. You put all your effort into defining the problem, you work with a team to put in solutions you think will work and BINGO, the problem re-appears! The issue could be that you were not clear on how to sustain your solution. We believe that standard auditing and Standard Work are key to keeping your solutions in place for the long haul. Let us show you how.
What Happened to 5S?
We love the 5S process. It was all the rage many years ago and for some reason we don’t see people using it as often as they should. If you have issues with tools going missing, time being wasted or people being unclear of what to do, the odds are good that 5S can help you. We help our clients not only learn the approach, we come in and help you do an actual project to help your team gain confidence. Call us to day to book a Clarity Session.
Auding is not Just for QA
In manufacturing, we found that Kamishibai is one of the easiest and most engaging auditing processes around. I know it sounds like a mouthful, but it really not that hard. If you want more ownership and involvement from your team to keep things in place and defining what needs to be improved, we can show you this technique in your facility. We can also show you how to perform Gemba Walks that are aimed at spotting issues without falling into the blame game. If you don’t know how to keep your processes in place, let us show you how!
