Mapping to See Value Stream Improvement for the Office and Services - 2 Days - 18th & 19th January 2017

Introduction

This interactive workshop demonstrates how to apply value-stream mapping, a fundamental and critical tool, to address what many companies find difficult to do: making a fundamental change in business processes such as administrative, professional, and transactional activities.  You will see how the key elements of Lean thinking and value-stream mapping apply to such activities by identifying key processes to tackle, drawing an accurate current-state map of each process, applying Lean principles to develop a vision an improved future-state and implementing the future-state in a way that can be sustained.

Value Stream Mapping at the Gemba (“Learning to See” applied to a real working Value Stream) Intensive 3- Days - 21st-23rd February 2017

Introduction

“Learning to See” helped many of us to start understanding the process of mapping our value streams, some of us started to practice mapping what we could see - the transformation of raw materials into a finished product.  However, as we have begun to tie in our order to delivery information flows - the information that tells us what to work on and when - we have uncovered a previously hidden amount of work to be done in our other processes.

This workshop takes delegates through the process of value stream mapping, introducing you to the issues you will come across as you map in real life and the common challenges that many face during VSM.  Delegates will join members of a team working in an active value stream to walk the process and map the current state process, then identifying waste and non value added activity before developing future state value stream map and improvement plan.

Most importantly "Learning to See" explains the questions required to help design the Future State value stream, during the VSM we will discuss and share relevant examples during a real mapping exercise.

Standardised Work: Foundation for Kaizen - 2 Days - 26th-27th April 2017

Introduction

Standardised Work is one of the most powerful and well-known Lean tools and is core to any organisation that is serious about improving their business performance. By documenting the current best practice, standardised work helps form the baseline for kaizen or continuous improvement. As the standard is improved, the new standard becomes the baseline for further improvements, and so on. Improving the work moving from one standard to the next improved standard then becomes a never-ending process.
Despite the popularity of standardised work it is often misunderstood, under-utilised and many organisations have numerous challenges in applying Standardised Work as a foundation for continuous improvement.

During this 2-day workshop we will explore various dimensions of standardised work that help develop a greater understanding of the work, reduce variation and how to maintain & improve standards.

Topics include:

  • Observation Techniques
  • Design & Analysis Techniques
  • Instruction Techniques
  • Routines to Help Maintain and Improve Standards
  • Leadership/ Management Standard Work
  • Process Confirmation & Layered Audits
