RVCF and Yusen Logistics Present:
Kaizen Rules!
for Operations

Thursday, September 24, 2015
3:00pm - 4:00pm EST

Logistics Professional and Kaizen enthusiast, Kirk White, presents a no-muss, no-fuss, slightly irreverent guide to processes improvement through implementing a robust yet accessible, employee-centric quality management system


Kaizen is a tool that provides a common language of process improvement; designed to empower the employee to take responsibility for his/her own processes and express issues, identify opportunities and otherwise enable a clear communication to management and stakeholders. Focused on the concept of "wisdom of the organization", Kaizen offers front line employees the tools, the voice and, most importantly, the CHALLENGE to own their processes and work with management to make them better, faster and more streamlined.

You will learn:

  • What is Kaizen
  • What it means to be "Gemba Focused"
  • Kaizen as a language to communicate to management
  • Wisdom of the Organization
  • The three components of work and how adopting a Kaizen methodology can streamline efforts and make life easier on the floor
  • Visualization as a means of communication and keeping score
  • PDCA to solve problems

This course is designed for any non-management ops personnel.
