Goal Strategy for Continuous Improvement (1-day workshop)

Based in part from the book “The Game of Work” by Charles Coonradt and the video “Toast Kaizen” by Greater Boston Manufacturing Partnership, this workshop explores the challenges we face in differentiating between value added and non-value added processes or activities, and teaches managers how to create action plans for reducing waste in their operations. Participants begin to change their perspective on their areas of responsibility, understand and learn how to identify the seven key areas of waste, and gain an overall methodology for developing engagement among their employees. Participants leave with several operational goals for improvement.
