Upcoming Training Courses

This webinar is designed to help organizations understand that the process of doing Gemba Walks is now even more critical than before as processes have become disrupted during the COVID-19 pandemic. One might wonder if an effective Gemba Walk, for transactional processes (and even for physical processes), can be performed while so many of us work virtually. The answer is a resounding “yes”. In fact, for transactional processes, virtual Gemba walks have proven to be just as effective, if not more so, than in person, because the Gemba is right in from of each person on their monitor. This 120-minute webinar, presented by the Director of US Operations Mike Micklewright, will provide you with quick and easy steps that you can implement in your business or team immediately. It will also include a Q&A session with our expert consultants. We hope you will join us on the Microsoft Teams platform for this event.

This webinar is designed to help organizations understand how to conduct effective Daily KAIZEN™ meetings in a virtual world. Preparing the workplace for COVID-19, business as usual, continuous improvement, resource and supply chain planning and implementation, must all still be performed effectively, but how is this possible in an environment where all or many employees are working from home? Just as we have always done, we find ways to adapt and carry on. On-Line Daily KAIZEN™ meetings have proven to make the transition from face to face interaction to meeting virtually so much easier. As an executive from a major insurance company wrote soon after the people started to work from home, “I am so grateful we have deployed the CI tools. I cannot imagine where we would be without those daily huddle sessions. We are now moving into a virtual environment with our boards.” Attendees will learn about KAIZEN™ team organization, Daily Kaizen, how to conduct virtual meetings effectively, and will see real examples of virtual boards in use. This 90-minute webinar, presented by the Director of US Operations Mike Micklewright, will provide you with quick and easy steps that you can implement in your business or team immediately. It will also include a Q&A session with our expert consultants. We hope you will join us on the Microsoft Teams platform for this event. This webinar is available to you free of charge through a sponsorship by our partners at Tundra Process Solutions
