Standardization & Standard Work Course

Control the Chaos

Standardization is the key to eliminating instability and variation in your processes. Apply it to get the upper hand on your processes, get away from “firefighting,” and finally control the chaos.

Sustain Your Gains

Learn the not-so-sexy secret to longterm lean success: standardization! If you don’t learn to standardize, you will never sustain your gains. Kaizen will fail!

Unlock Unlimited Improvement

Realize how true kaizen (aka continuous improvement) is about continuously improving standards, and engage your whole organization in the practice of improvement.
