A Factory of One

If you missed our most recent webinar called “A Factory of One you can watch a replay of it here.

It was excellent and I highly recommend you take the time to check it out.

It’s free to view until May 15, 2012.  After that it will only be available to subscribers of Gemba Academy’s Complete Lean Package.

You can watch the entire, hour long, webinar by clicking here.

Here is a description of the webinar.

Most people spend all their time applying lean tools to external processes and systems. But what about the fundamental machine of production: you? How can you reap the benefits from applying lean concepts to your own work?

Indeed, you can apply lean principles and tools such as visual management, flow, pull, 5S, and kaizen to your individual work to improve efficiency, reduce waste, and link yourself ever more closely to customer value. While it’s true that applying lean at the individual level won’t lead to an overnight revolution in organizational performance, it can lead to success stories that make you more effective, and can get your leadership to sit up and pay attention.

Dan Markovitz will share specific strategies from his new book, A Factory of One, that will help you use lean principles to make yourself and your teams more effective.

    Just want to say that “A Factory of One” is among the top 5 lean books I’ve read. It’s quick-hitting, to the point, entertaining, very practical and immediately applicable. With so much literature available these days across so many disciplines, I’m very selective as to what I recommend to my colleagues in healthcare. I had no hesitation in recommending this to my hospital’s leadership. In fact, our ER Director now has my copy and is raving to me about it – the strongest response of any book I’ve recommended, by far. Whether you read the book or take in the webinar “A Factory of One” is a must.
