DISCIPLINE:WASTE ELIMINATION

The buck may stop with the CEO, but waste elimination ends up on the desk of the implementer. No matter how successful the company, waste is still abundant, and the goal of all employees needs to be to eliminate this waste. Just like all important initiatives, implementing the solution can prove very challenging, but it must be accomplished. The three strategic focus areas for Waste Elimination are:

  2. Continuous Improvement
