Focus on one waste at a time

When we tackle the wastes present in a business we often take a view that we need to eradicate them all. All at once! Whilst this is an admirable approach a number of clients have found that by taking one waste at a time they have achieved far greater results.

Taking one waste category at a time (such as waiting) we found that people were far better able to locate and recognise the wastes, focussed activity rather than a shotgun approach to this activity.

Next time you are waste walking through your business consider breaking the activity up into various aspects, or assign various members of your team to spot the individual wastes.
