Here’s the recap of lessons learned from last week’s videos here on Elevate Your Performance.
Monday – Problem solving gemba walks. Key lesson: go and see, ask questions, show respect
Tuesday – Fundamentals in problem solving. Key Lesson: Say what you see to get things started
Wednesday – Standardized work. Key Lesson: Useful first, pretty second
Thursday – Getting started with visual management. Key Lesson: Understand what problem you are trying to solve when you install visual management. Second Key Lesson: Keep your focus on the needs of the team members to get them engaged.
Friday – I was working with a client early so I missed this one. I’ll get something uploaded today to keep the sequence and schedule intact.
Saturday – Travel Day. I recounted my adventures traveling during the pandemic. Key Lesson: Keep your sense of humor.
This week: I will continue sharing some thoughts about visual management systems and metrics, applying the key lessons learned from Thursday. We’re also welcoming October.
What I am planning for October through January is to use this energy I have behind these 87 episodes of this video series, Elevate Your Performance, to muster the discipline to write this High Speed Problem Solving book I already have outlined. Send me a little encouragement. I’m going to need it.
Have a great day and I’ll see you tomorrow.
