Recording family moments in video has never been easier with the introduction of the smart phone, but managing the inventory can be a nuissance! In this video, Daniel shows a way to eliminate needless digital inventory and the wastes of motion and transportation in backing up video files. Instead, he recommends a simple solution that follows in the footsteps of Paul Akers and 2 Second Lean.
The success of your lean journey truly depends on your ability to standardize your improvements. If you fail to standardize well, you’ll just keep losing ground! So in this video Daniel takes his morning routine for the new year and standardizes it. By making it physical and visual, this standard routine stands a better chance at being followed!
We made an entire training course that includes 3S and the best part about it is it is wickedly fun! The lean concept of 3S stands for three Japanese terms translated into english meaning: sort, sweep, and standardize. It’s a simple yet powerful method for creating organization and productivity while identifying problems and “fixing the things that bug us.”
We learned it from Paul Akers and the thousands of organizations practicing 2 Second Lean. We decided to make 3S relatable to all people, so in this video you’ll find five reasons why everyone needs 3S.
If you enjoy the video you can find much more about the Basics of Lean 5S Course here.
