Most organisations using lean thinking have a structured method for problem solving. However most tell us that they have challenges with:

  • Developing problem solving thinking in order to engage all levels of the organisation.
  • Tying their problem solving to key goals of their organisation.
  • Understanding the alternative methods available and agreeing which to use so they can be most effective.
  • Agreeing on the best ways to deploy problem solving.
  • Using problem solving as part of the overall capability development process.

Our one hour session is packed full of learning & discussion around A3 Problem Solving
