What is this 5S?

So simple, sure seems suspicious … No, not those five S’s.

Today, in a world of instantaneous marketing brought to business operators via their inbox and social media sites, it almost seems like everything that seems too good to be true, really is. Take heart. This is the real deal. 5S is a Lean Six Sigma concept which, by current standards, is relatively simple and does not always involve a large investment. It takes little more than discipline and consistency.

If your organization is like a lot out there, you are just doing what you can each day to be the best you can be at what you do. Guess what, if that describes you, you’ve already got the foundation in place for 5S. Imagine five actions your teams could adopt, no matter what function is being performed, and not only improve productivity and efficiency, but could reduce operating costs and drive a more organized, lean culture. By following these five steps, you could transform your business, and take the first step on your company’s lean adventure.

But, be advised. It takes a committed leader to ensure success. Join me April 5 at 11 a.m. at NAID 2014 to get started!
