Day 3-5 out of the 5 days of Lean Sensei's Greenbelt Module 1 is spent at the gemba for practical application of the lean tools taught on day 1-2. Here at Lean Sensei, we have a practical approach to lean training. To truly learn the tools and methodologies, you have to use them!
This week, the Greenbelts are at a local trailer manufacturing company to apply their 5S know-how. The Greenbelts apply their skills in a real life company setting and the hosting company receive real savings.
Next, each Greenbelt candidate will need to complete a 5S project on their own without the rest of their classmates or a Lean Sensei coach. This project must be completed at their home organization. A minimum of 25% improvement is one of the criterion to receive a pass on this homework project.
Genchi gembutsu, go and see!
