Mark’s note: I asked Dan to write a post about his upcoming class…
I’ll be teaching a class this fall at the Stanford University Continuing Studies Program on A3s — how to create them, how to review them, and how to coach others on them. The goal of the class is to help you learn to use PDCA thinking to improve performance.
The class will be held on Thursday evenings from 6:00pm to 7:50pm for five weeks, from September 23 to October 21. Each class will consist of a short lecture on the different parts of the A3, evaluation and critique of a sample A3, and then time to work on your own A3 with classmates.
Special note: if you’re not interested/able to take the class but have experience with A3s, I’d love to have you be a guest reviewer for the students’ A3s during one of the classes. Please contact me if you’d like to participate: dan [atsign] timebackmanagement.com.
