This 1.5-hour session will introduce four focus areas that will enable you effectively deploy a Daily Management process across your organization.

1. Foundational 5S: 5S is not about housekeeping; it’s about creating an infrastructure of discipline. It’s not something that gets done one time and it’s over; it’s about a process that builds the foundation of daily management. The following tools will be discussed:
