A Lean Office Tool
Learn how Gemba Walking is used by leaders to better understand the current state process
“Gemba walking” is leadership visiting the actual location where work is being conducted by the employees so he/she can grasp a first-hand understanding of the constraints, waste, and non-empowerment opportunities existing in the current state process. This course provides a preliminary understanding of this foundational tool of the Lean business mentality, includes the behaviors and planning necessary to optimize positive outcomes in the form of process improvement, and strives to lay the groundwork for strengthening mutual trust between employees and leadership. Interactive class exercise gives participants the opportunity to practice Gemba walking.
