Corporate Social Responsibility
Engineers from Toyota conducted a kaizen at a soup kitchen in Harownlem, bringing the wait for dinner from up to 90 minutes to a mere 18 minutes.
But it doesn't stop there, in Bushwick, Brooklyn, volunteers packed boxes of supplies for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Needless to say timeliness is crucial and boxes that once took 11 minutes to pack was brought down to 3 minutes!
In our own small part of the world, being lean helps us exercise corporate social responsibility by reducing waste (both in tangible and intangible forms), improve processes and motivate and empower people.
Reflection: What do you do to help your company exercise corporate social responsibility?
