Posted by Greg Jacobson

May 3, 2022 12:44:05 PM

Organizations have adopted the Lean methodology worldwide to improve work processes, reduce waste, and achieve overall performance optimization. The approach grew out of the Toyota production system, which helped Japan capture the automotive market following World War II.

Although there are other popular business management approaches, Lean succeeds because it focuses on improving business processes daily and delivering the end product to customers with the most possible value.

Modern companies leverage Lean management software to ensure that continuous improvement is productive and efficient.

An Overview of DMAIC for Beginners

Posted by Brittany Currier

Apr 28, 2022 5:32:37 PM

DMAIC (pronounced də-MAY-ick) is a data-driven technique used to improve processes. It is a key tool of the Six Sigma methodology, but it can be implemented as a standalone improvement method or as part of other process initiatives like Lean.

The technique is simple, yet powerful. It brings structure to the improvement process and helps teams explore potential solutions, decide a course of action, and implement process controls in short order.

Trying any new improvement strategy can be intimidating, so we thought it would be helpful to break down all the details of DMAIC so that you can give it a try with confidence.

Ecologists and other environmentally aware people often talk about the goal of "Zero Waste." But, of course, that's an outstanding goal for business as well.

Reducing waste is at the heart of the Lean business methodology. The purpose of Lean is to spend more of your time creating value for customers by reducing or eliminating everything that does not produce value (AKA the waste). Value can take the form of finished goods, services, or information. To make it easier to identify waste in business processes, Lean practitioners target eight specific types of waste.

Although the Lean approach originated in manufacturing, it is used in almost every sector. Strikingly the eight wastes are common across industries, including software development, construction, healthcare, and education. Although it is not as apparent as it may be on a factory floor, the set of tasks and activities performed in any sector creates a production process that ultimately provides value to a customer.

While some of the wastes are self-explanatory, others are more difficult to recognize. This post aims to help by giving a few examples of each type of waste in various businesses. Hopefully, they will help you think about how waste may be occurring in your operations and how to begin designing processes that minimize it. Of course, the people who are most likely to find and correct waste are the process operators, so it is a good idea to share these examples with them and provide a way for each employee to submit opportunities for improvement.

How to Become a Better Leader by Improving Processes

Posted by Matt Banna

Apr 21, 2022 10:37:00 AM

Many books and articles about good leadership focus on interpersonal relationship skills like communication, humility, and empathy. Of course, all of these traits are important for good leadership. Still, they don't directly address the most critical responsibility of a leader, which is to create systems and infrastructure that support employee performance. After all, every system is perfectly designed to get the results that it brings.

While it is tempting to blame problems and performance misses on people, the reality is that even the most skilled and dedicated employees are only as effective as the processes they operate. Therefore, if you want to improve your leadership, it makes sense to recognize this and focus your energy on improving processes and empowering employees to engage in process optimization.

The Importance of Refueling at the Gemba

Posted by Austin Linn

Apr 14, 2022 10:14:00 AM

Continuous improvement work cannot exist in a vacuum. In order for the fire of change to burn hot and bright, it needs a fuel source. The CI Leader who spends all day behind a desk reading reports, creating A3s, and sorting through employee-submitted improvement ideas will find themselves running on fumes in the blink of an eye. We don’t run our cars without gas in the tank, so why do we try to run our continuous improvement work that way? Without a refill, that work will start to slow and sputter until it loses that last bit of momentum that was keeping it going. Your CI projects will end up abandoned and forgotten on the side of the road. Luckily, no matter how much the price of gas might rise, refilling your CI tank will never cost more than a trip to the Gemba.
