(Day 2) Understand the Current Situation - Analyse current state, brainstorm charitable ideas and values, complete and cause and effect (Root Cause Analysis) or FMEA (Failure Mode Effect Analysis) workout, set priorities for all stakeholders, complete a value stream diagram of the current to potential future state design of a structured problem solving system, achieve improvement through a measured set of steps to set in place a mistake proof culture. Set objectives.

Begin and implement improvement(s), apply DOE (Define of Experiment) and simulate new process. Train participants though “real-time” experiments and forecast analysis. Provide summary and set objectives for day 3.
(Day 4) Continue to implement the new value stream mapping exercises. Try out simulation of new process. Train participants and tweak design as needed, create and implement standard work, measure future state, calculate actual benefits, day 4 summary and set objectives for day 4 summary
(Day 5) Finalize the future state, complete training on standard work, final presentation and measure to track, tweak and sustain change.
Advanced Lean Kaizen activities to provide continuous improvement. Realize the transformation processes are an emerging demand in the age of AI and technology applications. Application of lean process improvement is the foundation to help the workflow and workforce prepare, design and develop a sustainable future. Specifically, this is evident in developing your people and reforming standard work, performance management processes and sustain change.
