Level of Instruction




Week-1: What is Going on Here? We learn how to gather the team and pose the question: What issue during your workday requires you to stop your work and fix some thing before you can continue. 

Week-2. Understanding the Real Issues: understand most if not all of the contributing factors for the selected issue and to understand the reasons for occurrence.

Week-3: Observing the Process: We discuss the process of following the workflow from start to finish and document any activities that may have contributed to our original issue.

Week-4: Documenting a Few Steps of the Process: By studying the process flow we grasp the handoffs, bottlenecks, defects and what happens from start to finish.

Week-5: We can Design a More Efficient Process: We note opportunities or defects that occur within our process flow and start the improvement process.

Week-6: Ok. That Worked so What’s Next?: We will understand how to continue with the improvement process. We revisit the original process map, choose another problem, brainstorm with our team and work to eliminate this issue from reoccurring.
