The question of today is : what is most important to ensure a sustainable Lean system!!??
Organizations are focusing on kaizen and improvement action plans….
Unfortunally they forgot to focus also on standardization…
To answer to this question i will use a quote of Taiichi Ohno:
“Where there is no standard,there can be no kaizen”
What does it mean? ….
Often we have a company that implement kaizen but lose every time part of benefits due to not stabilization and standardization.
How can we ensure standardization?
We have to focus on
3. KPI review and rapid problem solving
4. Leadership standard work is very important ….where leaders are executing coaching ,gemba walk, and pdca activities
