FACING CHANGE: A force for good in the workplace

Change is hard. We all gravitate to what is familiar. How often do we stop to ask “does this really add value?” This presentation is a discussion on how small changes in the workplace can improve work flow, processes and get people working toward continual improvement. Waste shows up as over production, defects, disorganization, poor process flow and waiting. None of these add value and most use resources that can be reallocated to add value back. We will show you a case study in change at our factory that generates hundreds of improvements every year. You will see how to start a program that can help your organization implement a continuous improvement program.
