Rapid Improvement Events
Accelerate your improvement program with action based Rapid Improvement Events. These include a mixture of “train and do”, normally run during a two to four hour session followed by rapid application of the learning. Carried out over a two to five day period, these workplace events are used to make a radical change in a short time. The changes are so dramatic it is hard to go back to the old way of doing things. Used as a key tool in any ‘Lean’ implementation and often referred to as a “Kaizen” activity, teams challenge existing methods and devise newer, faster, higher quality and more value adding ways of doing things.
