The quality connection

“Genchi genbutsu” (the longer, more specific definition of “gemba”) means “going to the place to understand the situation.”  That could easily be the definition of an internal quality audit.  Yet, “gemba” is a “lean thing” and internal auditing is a “quality or ISO thing” and so are treated separately, which is wasteful.  Learn how to combine the best of each process and eliminate the redundant waste by conducting “GembAudits.”

Gemba walking is often misunderstood and so is performed incorrectly and becomes ineffective. The main purpose of going to the gemba is to see the waste and teach, thus supporting one’s leadership skills.   Learn how to do the gemba properly and learn about different options to increase its effectiveness. 

“Leadership Through Gemba Walking” is a masterfully produced, two-part streaming video training series featuring lean expert Mike Micklewright. These in-depth videos provide insight into how (and how not) to walk the gemba. Anyone, from experienced managers to those walking the gemba for the first time, will get great value from this set.
