Lean Coaching - Shop Floor Employee

Your team works with us and learns

If we have to spend time in a room, kaizen team will be working. Production employees need to be active to be at their best.

If theory needs to be transfered to team members, it will always be brief and supported by easy to understand documentation.

We rely on facts to understand. As we dig with the team on available data, they will learn that field observations are essentials to make sure we fully understand and take best corrective measures (action plan).

Team members will often require help from other employees and managers to collect all the information. Even people outside of the workshop will be involved.

Every time we hold a kaizen event, there is a communication plan for both the team members and employees of the company.
