This is the Kick-off week of our first Service Greenbelt of the year. The class has already learned some of the tools necessary to successfully apply Lean.
Today, the ground rules were officially announced. Yesterday, the class came up with the ground rules as a group, under the facilitation of one of their classmates. This Greenbelt candidate applied Lean Sensei's FACILITATE methodology for effective facilitation- facilitation is much more than simply standing in front of the room and speaking. In fact, only 20% of learning happens from listening. 90% of learning is from doing, therefore the ability of the facilitator to get the group going is vital.
It is a rather rainy week for a kick-off....
But everyone is in good spirits!
