At KaiNexus, Dr. Greg Jacobson and I have been doing new webinars each month (see the library here). Our most recent one was hosted by our friends and partners at Gemba Academy, so thanks to them for that and all of their support.
Last week’s webinar is archived on our website, which you can access by clicking on the image below:
One our themes was about the common situation (a good problem to have) of having a “flood” of employee ideas when you start a Kaizen approach that engages everybody in improvement:
How do we address those ideas in a way that leads to more ideas? If that image above look like a scary, potentially crushing wave, can we get to the point of a steady flow of ideas (more like a river)?
If we take the right actions and exhibit the right behaviors, we can avoid an “idea drought,” where the flow of ideas dries up:
We hope you find the webinar to be interesting and helpful. Let us know what you think by posting a comment here on this post.
