In education, we adapt our “customer” to be the receiver of the improved process. This could be teachers after an evaluation process is reviewed, it could be students after a discipline process is reviewed. Walking the Walk – Gemba walks are the start of the process. We will review steps you can take to have successful Gemba walks in your organization. Consulting Time – We have built in the consulting time for this workshop with our online sessions between the meeting days. You will have access to the other attendees and the presenter during this time. Differentiate between value and non-value activities and start to identify those within your improvement cycle.

The role of management is to change the process rather than badgering individuals to do better.” W.
